Woohoo!!! AND Challenge #50 @CSAYL

Ok I don't normally do this BUT do you remember this card I posted HERE? Well I'm so freakin' excited because I won the SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY challenge with that card AND I was picked as a TOP 3 AT PAPER SUNDAES for it as well!!! My mom didn't know she was getting such a special card. She's going to have to frame it, lol!! Just had to share....

Ok back to the regularly scheduled post - it's Friday so what's that mean? Yep it's time for another Christmas creation for the CSAYL blog. Today our challenge was given to us by fellow team member Patricia - we are to create a card using the following requirements:

Base: Kraft paper - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Layer: Red paper - 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
ANY DP - 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
Ribbon or Fabric: White
Buttons or Brads: Red

And here is what I came up with:

I'm going to admit, I was a tad skeptical about this challenge. But as I've said before that's what I enjoy about challenges - they make me step out of my comfort zone. And I'm pleased with the results so it's all good :)

I hope you'll join us this week and play along. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
