Happy Holidays!!

Ya'll have been spending time making Xmas cards but, I'm just trying to "Catch Up"!! This card is for the CASE study challenge this week {Amy Sheffer....need I say more??}... one of the first blogs I have "drooled" over or... my jaw "hit the keyboard"... !!! Used the colors from C484FN43 {brown, tan, green..perfect for a homespun Xmas card}... found this challenge in the last few months and Lovin it... gets the old brain cells movin'.

Here's my card

Those 3D Verve Xmas trees {Winter Fun A Cut Above Dies} have been calling my name.... I've seen several cards made with this technique and just HAD to throw in my own... die cut four chocolate felt trees and a couple with the patterned paper and stitched down the middle. Trees are popped on top of a nestabilitie blossom die in crumbcake and circle nestabilite embossed with the SU textile folder for a little "homespun" feel. Sentiment is from Verve's Santa's Helper stamped on a Verve embossed oval die and layered on top of some crinkled ribbon, added a couple rustic jingle bells from frostitpink. DP is Authentique Wonder and MME Lost & Found Breeze. 

The colors....

Amy's fabulous card... I went with the layout, two butterflies {substituted two trees} and changed colors.  

TFL!! Now it's time to go "kick my DH's butt bowling".... our Winter pasttime is Wii... the Wii Dance is coming next- can't wait to see him "making the moves" hehehe!!

Appreciate when you stop by and all the kind words!!

Your case if FABULOUS, Vickie!! Looooove those 3D trees. I have that die on my wish list. Great use of the colours too. A real stunner.

Go and kick some serious butt LOL! Hubby and I once went real bowling and I got three turkeys in a row and was kicking his butt so bad that one of the guys at the desk told me to take it easy on him! To which I replied "we're married now so I don't have to be nice to catch him anymore" LOL! Enjoy!
