CTD#221 & MM270...

Hello and happy Sunday to you all! Well, it's a brand new week and according to the Mayan calendar, only 12 more day till the end of the world. (If you believe all that...which I don't) Here is what I think of it:

I definitely take the optimist's view! Love that the Oreo cookie looks like the Mayan calendar! Coincidence? I think not! LOL!

Anyhooooo, on to a card that I like to share with you. I am entering this for both The Color Throwdown #221 and for Mojo Monday #270.

The inside:

Here are the challenges:

Love that vintage Santa picture, especially that cute little mouse peeking out of his pocket! I didn't do much stamping on this card other than the inside sentiment. (Very rare of me to do that!) But with the Christmas Emporium collection by Graphic 45, you get a couple of pages of tags, so why wouldn't I use them?! Used both my die cutting machines on this card: my Slice Elite and my Grand Calibur. I used the Noel cartridge and cut the poinsettia 3 times: once in the green paper and twice in the red, but using two different sizes. I then used the layering effect and cut the outlines in black card stock and adhered them to the flowers. I cut some individual leaves from the green paper and glued those on the back of the larger flower, then used foam squares to attach the smaller one on top. My leaves represent the smaller hearts in the sketch. I added a brad and some twine to the tag I cut out and attached that with foam squares as well.

Well, I have one more card to blog about then it's off to do some Christmas shopping! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
