Waltzingmouse Stamps Challenge 22

Hi all!  Its Wednesday and I've got a couple of highlights to share for today!  The first of course is that my lovely card ladies are coming and that is always fun!  Secondly, I've got a new mattress being delivered today.  Exciting huh?

But for my card today, I'm sharing a card that I made for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.  I must admit that I love sketch challenges but sometimes they are just plain hard for me... don't ask and sometimes it doesn't even matter if they are simple or more complicated.

Today's card is my 2nd take on it.  The first one went into the recycling tote, but I am quite satisfied with this one.   Totally different card than the first try.

I used Close to my Heart holiday paper which is probably my favorite holiday paper that I've seen in a long time.  It is just lovely!  The large brown strip is actually some very wide ribbon that I happened to have and the holly pieces are part of the designer paper that I glued onto cardstock and then cut out.  Stamps of course are Waltzingmouse.


Thanks for coming to visit and have a great Wednesday... the week's half over!
