SSS243 Christmas Card

Hi Friends, how are you this fine Election Day? I'm doing better. I have a card to share that was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch 243 except I changed out the circle for an oval and rounded the corners.
 I'm also playing in a challenge for my monthly Local Card Club. We were given a 12x12" piece of this retired Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas paper (Once upon a Christmas line)  and asked to make a card with it. One side is a cream damask and the other side, a large scale text print. I love it! And because I have to beef up my card stash I made 3 cards. I used just about every inch of the one piece of paper. 

The red paper on my card is looking a little wonky, I might have corrected the color too much in the editing process! 

I'll be entering these in some other challenges as well:

  3. Long about the time I think I want to make something besides a Christmas card, I see something like this and I'm all inspired again. Good job using up that sheet of paper. Sometimes a single 12 x 12 sheet will hang around my stamp room for years, using little bits at a time. Your cards are beautiful!

  4. So pretty. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation with us at Creative Card Crew.
