Shopping Our Stash Bonus Challenge - A joint challenge with Jingle Belles!

Surprise! We have a treat in store for you today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! We've joined up with the gals at Jingle Belles for a joint challenge! One of the gals, Lauren, is also on the DT here at SOS and thought it would be a great idea to join both challenges together for fun! We loved the idea! So, what are we asking for? Very simple: make a Christmas card using any supplies that are at least a year old! You all know you are hoarders! ☺ Break out those old paper collections, those stickers, that ribbon with the snowflakes on it, and USE it!! LOL! Here's my card:

Here is the inside: 

The paper I used is The Merry Days of Christmas, by MME. It's from 2009! The 3D ornament is by K&Company, and it's from July of 2013. I regret I didn't look up the joy stamp to see when the set it's from came out, but it was either last year or 2012. The die cut label on the inside is from the same paper collection. My card is based off of CTS #81.

So, there you have it - a mind meld of crafty geniuses! I hope you get to play along with Shopping Our Stash and Jingle Belles! Don't forget to link your card to both challenges! And if you have time, please check out my teammates and the Jingle Belles have created! You won't be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by!
