Merry Monday Challenge ~ Ribbon or Twine

I thought I would try something different this year for me
Since I am a "by the seat of your pants" type of girl...
I am challenging myself to join the weekly "Merry Monday" challenge
to make a Christmas card, once per week.
Just think, if I keep at it, I will have a slew of cards finished when I need them!!

The other challenge to myself, is I have a HUGE Ziploc bag of already
die cuts, stamped images, and pieces of this and that to use up....
SO, I am going to try my best to just work out of that bag...
should be fun to see that bag "dwindle" !!!!

My card today is a LONG time ago "cased" layout from a, I presume SU demo.
I tweaked it a bit by adding a bit of Stickles to the snowflakes.
....all I had to do was add the already stamped panel to the card stock
and "viola" I was hmmm!!

Entering this the challenge at "Merry Monday" which is "ribbon or twine".

Lovely card Diane - it will be handy to have all those festive makes at your fingertips come December! This card is beautifully simple and the Stickles surely give it some real wow-factor ;)

This is fabulous Diane and what a great idea ... maybe I should join you at Merry Monday and I too can be 'ahead of the game' this year!
Great job once again!

One a week is quite a challenge, but you'll be so glad you did it, even if you miss a week once in a while. To use up the parts is a great goal, too. This turned out wonderful with those pretty snowflakes. I think I have this set. Not sure if it's the same, but I have an SU! snowflake set I've never used. It is definitely on "the list".
