CCAYR September reminder

This is my design card for the Christmas Belles CCAYR September reminder. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team. You can join in the challenge here with your shabby chic or monochrome Christmas creations. Please click on that link to see the lovely designs by the Gingerbread Gals team and also see the lovely prizes to be won.

One of the sponsors of the challenge is Elisabeth Bell and I used some of her lovely toppers that I bought from Foil Play. Papers are from  a Glad Tidings 25 days of Christmas pack by Simple Stories,brushing edges of the toppers and papers with vintage photo distress ink. I added the lace for a bit more of a vintage look.

    PS: Sorry for the late comment, life had been very busy the past couple of weeks…

  36. Haven't started on my holiday cards yet. This is really pretty!

    I'm a fellow stamper who makes blank general and thank you pet themed handmade cards and donates them to animal shelters and rescue groups. I've just started a new blog, Sending Paw Prints, for this purpose. I love your cards and am hoping if you have a stash of pet themed cards or are interested in making some you'll think of donating them to Sending Paw Prints.

    Thank you!
    Karen Howard
