Stampsmith Christmas Challenge

Hi Everyone,
It is the first of the month and that means challenge time at the Stampsmith Challenge blog. Since it is the first, you do not have to use Stampsmith stamps. So, how easy is that? The theme is The Holiday Season. Let's see what you come up with. There is a prize too. A $10 gift certificate to the Stampsmith Shop. I used my Coffee Gal stamp. This is such a versatile image. I just love it. Here is my card.

The DP is from Anna Griffin. The image is stamped on glossy white CS with black dye ink. I added lots of layers and some cording. I rolled the cording into a the lower left corner...and used a good glue (like Fabric Tac). Here are some close ups.

Some fun challenges for Coffee Gal Christmas:
Alota Rubber Stamps: Christmas
Craft Your Passion: Monochrome
Paper Playtime: Christmas Carol Inspired-We wish you a Merry Christmas
Stamps R Us: Holiday card
2 Sisters: Non-traditional colors

Paper Play challenges: Monochrome

My Time to Craft: Vintage Cards
