CTD271- merry christmas!!

Another Happy Wednesday to you!! Barbara picked some fabulous colors and I love the inspiration pic!! Loved all the cards from last week... hope you play again!!

My card....

Still playing at making my own backgrounds... lots of fun!! Here I used WPlus9's Merry and Bright along with the Christmas Words dies from Paper Smooches... LOVE them both!! There are so many more images in the Bright and Merry set- I only used 3 and the Paper Smooches die set has 7 dies that can be mixed- the Christmas on my card is the largest.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented guestie - Cindy Lawrence at  One Happy Stamper!! Thanks Cindy for joining us!!

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.   

This is also for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make your own background.
