Jingle Belles 18


Our challenge this week is to make a card without any designer paper as suggested by Jess Moyer.  Now I'm not quite sure that I'm within the rules.  I didn't use any designer paper, I just used stamps on my Whisper White cardstock for the background to my cardinal.  It's a stamp from Artistic Etchings stamped in three different greens and the silhouette of the branch is also stamped in the darkest color.  That and the cardinal are from A Cardinal Christmas.  Everything else is cardstock - not even a smidge of ribbon! 

You'll be able to see the rest of the creations if you click on the first link above.  Go on - give them some love.
