CCC #27

I TOTALLY FORGOT about our Crafty Critter Challenge!!!! Oh Jennifer...it is such a great challenge. I'm glad I logged onto SCS tonight and saw you all talking about it!
We were to make a card using this SCS color challenge (272), the colors were Kraft, Bermuda Bay and Real Red. Jennifer added a twist to make it a Christmas card. Well, I've not made the first Christmas card this year so I REALLY needed to complete this challenge :)

Now, I have to say, Bermuda Bay is not one of my favorite colors. I still have the 2 sheets that came in the 1 pack of In Color card stock I ordered last year. Ain't that pitiful?!
This is what I came up with...

I used the SU! Snow Swirled and (new!) Perfect Punches stamp set. One of my new favorite things to do is tear a strip of card stock, put snail adhesive all along the back and gather it on the card. I used my "new to me" real red satin ribbon. I punched a hole with my slot punch to tie the bow.

I hope you enjoyed this early Christmas card :)

Until next time...
Blessings...
