Holiday Card Front – MDSM38

Halloween was a great success. Everyone loved the pumpkins Ali carved. I should have taken a picture of them all lit up last night….but alas I think I was in a candy coma.

Excited by the start of the holiday season, I thought I would search for some Christmas card ideas. Tara Bourgoin over at  MDS Monday has a terrific card sketch for challenge MDSM38, and after checking out all the design team inspiration pieces, I though this would make a great holiday card front.


I used Stampin’ Up! DSP from the Letters to Santa collection, and I altered some of the embellishments from the Playful Polka Dots collection to compliment the papers. Below is my entry to the challenge.

Until Next Time… Happy Crafting!
