Holiday Joy {VLVDec2010}

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  After some MUCH NEEDED craft area clean up yesterday, I decided to play in this week's Viva la Verve challenge over in the Verve forum on Splitcoaststampers.  Amy Sheffer brought us this week's FUN sketch!  If you'd like to play along, we'd love to have you!  You can read about all the details here.

I broke out a Verve set from LAST YEAR's Christmas release, Christmas in the Air.  I LOVED this set last year when it came out and I love it just as much now!  When I was cleaning up my craft area I found a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey Wassail paper and knew I would use it for this card.  I'm not a big Basic Grey fan, but I love a few of their paper packs and this happens to be one of them!

The tree was paper pieced and finished with some adhesive gems.  I went rebel again and tilted the main panel.  Some die cut snowflakes (Nestabilities) with a sentiment from Holiday Phrases and some wrinkle ribbon finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!
