Crafty Secrets Challenge #44

Here is my card for today's Crafty Secrets challenge over on the SCS forum, hosted by Joanne (angelnorth). Joanne has requested a DIY Christmas - a Christmas or winter holiday project BUT NO Christmas/winter stamps or image booklets. These are FORBIDDEN ITEMS.

We can use: any other CS stamp set, non-Christmas papers, punches, die cut or premade embellishments (including snowflakes, gift packages, stars, etc.,) and ribbon, buttons, lace, etc.

The holidays always mean cooking & baking so that is what I based my card around. As you all know, I am a huge fan of Crafty Secrets products and I just received some awesome items from Sandy Redburn (thanks Sandy) which I couldn't wait to use! These "little people" are from the What's Cooking Sticker Pack (aren't they adorable ...). The background paper is from the CS Earthy design paper pack. Isn't it beautiful?? It's two sided and how convenient that it was red on one side and green on the other!!! I decided to "create a kitchen" using a Basic Grey Ambrosia scrap for the floor and another CS Earthy piece for the kitchen wall. The wallpaper border was created from the CS Kitchen Classics set. The accents are felt snowflakes by Creative Impressions and I used a touch of gold Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by! Now I really must get some work done around here if I'm every going to be ready for company on Thursday! Hope to see you later!
