Christmas Without Red or Green

The challenge at Perfect Sentiments PSC88 is to make a card for "Christmas without using Red or Green." Check! That's easy to do with this great Echo Park Winter Wishes paper pad! It's got shades of purple, plum, aqua and blue that I just love! I made a herringbone background using leftover strips of dsp and then cut it with a SU! top note die. After die cutting, I ran the piece through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. This adorable image is by Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from SU! I added a couple felt snowflakes along with a gemstone brad I've had forever. Since the challenge at Shopping our Stash #115 is to use our oldest hardware, I'm entering this card to that challenge as well. The background embossing on the white panel was done with a SU! retired embossing folder, and there's a speck of liquid applique on the bunny's tail just for fun :)

Thanks for checking in today and have yourself a wonderful day!

Whee! That is what the bunny says as he sleds along. How cute!!! I love your image and the wonderful, colorful paper for the herringbone pattern. What a pretty brad..maybe you shouldn't have held it so long. It's too pretty to have been hidden away.
