This card is for CHNC's music card challenge. I wanted to use up some scraps, so everything is from the scrap box except the french horn glitter sticker. The sentiment is a piece of ribbon with glittered Merry Christmas already on it, and the rest are from nestie cut-outs. I like the way it turned out - I hope you do, too.
Thanks for taking a look at this week's projects. Christmas is nearly here and I now have an ample supply of cards to send out. (I'm also looking forward to next year's challenge at Bah!Humbug! and CHNC! It's been lots of fun and I've learned quite a few new tips and techniques along the way. If you haven't already, go check them out!)

I have used a free clipart image from Arthursclipart.org. I cut it out using a Nestie and added stickles to the holly berries. I also added Martha Stewart loose flocking to the hat. The organza ribbon and rub-on sentiment are from my stash. We've been very busy at work these days, so I've not had much time to spend on card making. Thus, another quick card this week.
Thanks for popping by to take a look.

Here come the girls! is our theme for the week at Bah!Humbug! So, I tried to be as girlie as I could by using softer colors to make a huge poinsettia flower. The flower and leaf petals are just torn from card stock. I then scored down the middle to make the vein, and inked the edges with chalk inks to match the petals. I added white brads to the center, and white grosgrain ribbon stamped with a sentiment underneath the flower. I then put it on a mat of white and green before sticking it to the card base. The inside is finished, also, with the same colors.
I would also like to enter it into CHNC's "build it up" challenge for this week. I have used multiple layers, so I think it will qualify.
Thanks for taking a look...I hope you like it!

I was out of town the past week, helping my oldest move, so had to make a quick Christmas card this week.
This is for the Bah!Humbug! challenge of the week, which is to do or use something new.
For my card, I used a new stamp and also fussy cut the edge after putting on a border sticker (I've never done that before - took lots more time than anticipated). I added some stickles and gems to the tree, and put some gifts underneath (stickers that had gifts on them, that I cut out). A piece of red grosgrain ribbon was added down the side and a peel off sentiment at the top.
The card base is white, but looks darker in the pic. (It was very late when I finished- will need to retake the pic when it is light out)
Hope you like it, and thanks for looking!

This was a fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card.

To add a little something extra, I used some glitter star stickers (Martha Stewart Glittered Snowflake Sticker sheet) that went with the aqua color in the patterned paper. As much as I like how it turned out, I do still think it needs something to dress it up a bit, and I know you ladies can give me some great ideas! So please don't hesitate to offer them!
Thank you for looking!
I hope you like it, and thank you for taking a look.

I hope you like it -it was fun doing the paper piecing and using a computerized image. I am also entering this into CHNC's anything goes challenge.
Below is last week's card with the added bling, and a sentiment wrapped around the outer scalloped edge. I do think it looks more finished now. (Not the best pic, though.) Thanks for the great suggestions!

For my entry, I've used only mittens, so I'm not really sure if I have satisfied the challenge.

I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for taking a look.

Thanks for taking a look!
