CCAYR Mid-Month Inspiration

Our challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round is sparkle and bling.  It can be Stickles, gems, glitter, pearls, or any thing you feel will meet the challenge rules.  If you haven't been to the challenge blog yet this month be sure you stop by to see all the wonderful cards of inspiration by the DT.  They really have some awesome cards to share with you.

Kept my mid-month card simple and easy by using a LOTV Topper matted with Cranberry CM cardstock, the same I used for the base.  The DP is from my stash as are the gems.  The poinsettia was die cut using a Spellbinders poinsettia die, then added glue and red glitter to the embossed veins in the leaves.  Can't get much easier than this.  I love the toppers for making quick cards and so many companies are now offering them for crafters.  You still have 15 days left to enter this months challenge and we'd love to see your creation.

That's it from me tonight folks.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
"Love & Hugs", Carol (Granny)
