Playing Along with THREE Challenges!

I thought I'd play along with a couple of challenges today.  The card I've made today actually works for three current challenges! Yay me!  This is not something that I manage to do very often!  The three challenges are:  Merry Monday Christmas, 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown, and Addicted to Stamps

Red and Green
Use Markers


Addicted to Stamps
CLEAN AND SIMPLE


So....here's my card for these three challenges:



I cut the white panel using a stitched rectangle die from SSS and mounted it with a piece of fun foam to a piece of red card stock which is adhered directed to the card base.  The big bow (with ribbon) is an image from Flourishes (sadly, I think they are out of business now!).  The tag and sentiment is also from Flourishes.  All I did was color the bow and tag with Copics, cut them out, and popped them with foam tape on the white card base.  Super quick and easy!

That's another Christmas card for my stash!  Maybe if I keep playing along with these challenges, I'll have all my Christmas cards done by November!  Wouldn't that be great?

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
