Here is my card for this week's Stamp Something challenge. The challenge is to make a card using red, green and gold. I wanted to use one of my new Whimsy stamps but switch it up a little to make it more festive. I decided to use Froggie. I cut him away from the lily pad and now he is perched on top of a Santa Hat. As I'm typing this I realise that I have a little Mistletoe stamp from Magnolia that would have been perfect to hang over his head! Oh well, inspiration came a little late this time. I think I will add if before I send this card out! Denise has three new releases that are just as cute as the first ones. This time there is an Owl, Moose and a Skunk. Check them out at Whimsy Stamps.
The card sketch I used is this week's Ismaki Challenge. I think it is a brilliant sketch because you can use up all your little bits and pieces of DP. I love all the papers that I use and I never want to throw any out but it does accumulate! This is the solution. I used my Creative Memories square punch and do you see that shiny gold paper? It is actually the inside of an envelope from one of the Christmas cards I received! Ssshhh don't tell!
