Belli Challenge #107 - Merry Christmas!

Today is the last Belli Challenge of the year. Can you believe this year is almost over? Where did the time go??

The Belli Girls want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and we are showing off our Christmas cards today. There is no "official" challenge this time around - just share your Christmas/holiday cards with us and spread the Christmas cheer.



This card is one of the techniques, called the Attached Pocket Notecard, on the new Fancy Folds & Motion CD from Technique Junkies. You can click on the button in the upper right area of my sidebar to order this fabulous cd. There are so many fun new ways to create cards and boxes on this cd!

I stamped this gorgeous pine tree image from Paper Bag Studios with green ink and then sponged and distressed the edges. This image just screamed for some rustic plaid papers and I added in some hemp twine for that country feel.

You can see more Christmas cards on the Belli blog, and while you are there, feel free to share a link to your own holiday card/project. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and join us for our first 2011 Belli challenge in January!
