OCC & Stamp Something Challenges

This is my LAST posting for today ... sorry if I've overloaded you today! But I'm just having so much fun I couldn't stop myself, LOL!!





I purchased a Thomas Kinkade Christmas Series 8x8 pack last year from Cornish Heritage Farms and just never got around to using them. After viewing THIS creation on my friend Joanne's (Ambrosia & Iron) blog, I decided it was time to open the package and this image would be perfect for the layout I wanted to use and the monochromatic portion of the card fell right into place. The felt snowflakes and brads are by Creative Impressions and the satin ribbon is by Darice. The background paper is from the DCWV Old World pack and the sentiment is from the SU "A Cardinal Christmas" stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by today! I can only hope you find inspiration in my work ... Good Night!
