Joyeux Noel!

Good Morning Everyone!
I am so excited its Friday :) Yipee! Every Friday, at the Christmas Stamping All Year Long Blog, we have a different challenge to help get the holiday mojo lasting through the year, so that its not a mad dash of stressful cardmaking towards the end of the year :) This year, Patty has come up with a wonderful challenge: to create a card that is "out of the box" or basically to create a card that can be of any shape other than the regular A2 card that we all are used to.

I made a circle card using the lovely and versatile stamps from Just Rite Stampers, where you can mix and match your borders and sentiments. I created this stamp set from the Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers Round 1-5/8" and I love the sentiment: "Joyeux Noel" :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism cardstock, DP from GCD studios
Stamps: Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers Round 1-5/8" from Just Rite Stampers
Inks: Memento Tuxedo black and Ladybug Red
Accessories: spellbinders, liquid pearls, MS punch, silk ribbon, bling from Want2Scrap

I had so much fun making this festive card - although I have to say that as the snow starts to melt and the weather starts to get warmer, I might have to put on some holiday music as I make my Friday holiday cards :) And on that note, I leave you with the song: "Dashing thru the snow, on a one horse open sleigh......."

Check out the lovely creations that the wonderful DT has created for this Shape Challenge!
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
