Waltzingmouse April Christmas Card Challenge

Hello! I am hosting the April Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge.  My challenge for this month is to make Christmas cards using at least one non-holiday stamp. 

I seem to have an obsession with holiday stamps. I have to have them all. And because of that, I believe that I also limit my creativity to those holiday stamps. I don't think outside the box. So I am challenging myself to pull out some of my non-holiday stamp sets and make Christmas cards using at least one non-holiday stamp. That shouldn't be too hard right? Well, it turned out to be a little harder for me this week because we are also in the middle of remodeling our master bedroom and everything in the house seems to be affected, particularly my mojo. 

White is my current fave, so I used it here and I used the pretty border stamp from the French Country stamp set.  It just begs to be colored so I used my Copics to add some holiday colors.  I finished it with a subtle glitter to the colored areas, but it is so subtle that it doesn't show up in the photos.  Too bad because it really is quite pretty.

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  I always love the awesome inspiration I find at this challenge.  Just upload your creation to the WMSCCC04-2013 gallery.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
