First up is the Less is More challenge, which was "Jingle All the Way." For this challenge, I went with bells, as they were leftover from my kit.
There was no stamping on this card, except for the inside sentiment. I had stickers left to use for the sentiment on the front of the card.
For my second card, I used this week's Muse card for inspiration. Here is there card . . .
I was inspired by the overlapping tags and the way that the sentiment and the elements overlap the tags. Here is my card . . .
This card has minimal stamping. It's all about the combination of these great pattern papers. The hounds-tooth background along with the musical note paper for the tags, the beige pattern paper for the tag toppers, and the chevron stripe paper for the ornament is a combination that works very well together. I used stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.
Two great challenges and an opportunity to use supplies on hand! Can't as for more than that on a Wednesday. Hope you find some time to create over this long holiday weekend.
