Christmas in September

Here's a card using a new layout for me. Not sure I like it, but it's different.

Sometimes, different is good.

Sometimes, it's just different.

Indecision may or may not be my problem today, and I'm incapable of deciding which is the case here. What do you think?

stamps: Art Warehouse, Papertrey (Snowflake Serenade)
ink: real red, old olive
paper: old olive, PTI vintage cream
accessories: Hero Arts rhinestone, dimensionals, ribbon


  1. I LOVE IT! I like how it makes your eye travel up and down the center with the green framing it out and grounding it..And the red ribbon brings out the red in the sentiment perfectly! And I am a sucker for BLING!! Its the cherry on top!

  2. I LOVE it! The LO caught my eye immediately!

  3. LOVE IT! The stamps are great, love the simplicity of it, love the ribbon and the way the central panel is lifted off the base. I love it all!

  4. I really like this card! The colors are beautiful and the little bit of bling adds the perfect touch!

  5. I think it's great! Bonus points for making a cute card with a round image. I never know what to do with those circle images! Well done!

  6. Okay, now I have that song in my head....not a bad thing, but when I get songs in my head, I can't go to sleep. Okay, TMI....this is just so cute! I need to go check out that stamp set just to see this image---and very nice layout, I must say!

  11. Love the card. Sometimes the simpliest and different is what makes the card that much more elegant. Beautifully done.!

  12. i like this layout. I find that I often use a similar one but the inner cs layer is a bit wider. love the bling in the middle. :-)
