Project Christmas 2011 ~ card 8

This is card # 8 for my Project Christmas 2011
Thanks to Jingle Belles to help me get a head start with all the christmas card I need for end year.

This week, Jingle Belles is paring up with Sketchy Thursday, which means you can make one card and enter it for 2 great challenges, how great can that be?

Here's the sketch from Sketchy Thursday

And here's my weird little christmas card, LOL!
Yep, I do think it is weird, just don't know what went wrong here, somehow it doesn't look "right" to me!


I am using most of left over from Pixie November Kit "Snow Shoe", endless supplies.... woo hoo..


These Echo Park Christmas Element stickers and Alphabets stickers in the kit are on sale now at the Pixie Shop

I have a surprise this morning, just found out that THIS CARD made me the color queen at COLOUR Q challenge last week, how cool can that be, I wasn't really comfortable using those colors, not my usual, but I love to be challenged, thanks to COLOUR Q for that extra "push" I always needed and help me get out of my comfort zone!

Oh this is cute! I don't think it's a funny little card. Love the little red blingy-thingy, it kind of looks like a wreath! And that ribbon is great!

Oh Kirsty!! This is absolutely sooooo NON-weird!! It is uber cute!! Love all the little elements that you brought together in this one card - the ornaments spelling out "Merry", the Santa, the half label, the ruched & stitched ribbon treatment (YUM!), the button...well, pretty much everything. Just a delightful combination of colors and sweetness! Great card!!
