Christmas Card # 1

Thought I start early with the Christmas cards this year if I ever going to get them finished. I just bought two new paper pads from Authentique that I think I will mainly use for my Christmas cards this year. Boy, are the gorgeous or what?! I bought the Festive and the Peaceful bundles. I never used papers from that company before but I really really like them. :)

I just had to try and make a Christmas card using a paper bag. Anne Kristine has a fabulous tutorial if you're interested in trying. :)

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

- ABC Christmas Challenge: U for Up to You
- Crafts & Me Challenges, Challenge # 106: Lace and Pearls
- Fairy Tale Challenge Blog, Challenge # 52: Something with a Photo

Papers: Brown paper bag, kraft cardstock and patterend papers from Authentique's Peaceful Collection
Image: Pion Design - From Grandma's Attic "Fairytale of Winter"
Dies: Brackets from Tim Holtz Alterations 
Stamp: Portobello Road "boy" stamps from My Mind's Eye 
Details: French stamped seeming bind from 5 dollar French Market's Etsy shop, Wooden button from Maya Road, Lace from Panduro Hobby, Roses and Crystal Stem from Wild Orchid Crafts, Poinsettia flower from You Do, Pearls from Kaiser Craft
