...had a shiny nose

Hello there. It's been what seems like a long time since I've made a card for challenges other than my DT duties. Life has finally slowed down some, so it was high time to get crafty. Here's a card I made this afternoon:

 Here's the inside:

I usually cut all my square/rectangle panels with a paper trimmer. I splurged and recently bought the pierced rectangle dies and the zig zag stitch square dies. I'm loving them! 

You can see the stitches better here.

I really like how this card came out, and I have yet another Christmas card done! Woo hoo! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
