Holiday Wishes - C4C #64

Happy Saturday! It's Crazy 4 Challenges day!! Today Cindy Haffner is our host again and she's challenging us to use circles on our cards or projects. Easy peasy, right?

This week's challenge is a prize challenge. Our sponsor for this week is Wink Wink Ink, one lucky person will randomly be chose from all the participants and will win $15 of digital stamps from the Wink Wink Ink store.

I guess I'm channeling my inner Silke Ledlow again today :) I love Silke's use of white and I wanted this card to be CAS, so it's got a lot of white. I'm using PTI's Tiny Treats: Christmas and 2010 Christmas Tags sets.

Not much to say about this card. I stamped the Mat Stack image, die cut it, and popped it up on some Pure Poppy saddle stitch ribbon, then I stamped the snowflake, punched it out with a 1 3/4" punch and added a Pure Poppy mat before popping it up on top of the Mat Stack image. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and added some of Silke's signature silver flat backed pearls as accents, and the whole thing is popped up on the base card on foam tape.

Here's the inside using a sentiment from Inside and Out: Christmas.

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C64.
