Have a Christmas Heart

Good morning everyone! Once again I am a little late with one of my challenge cards, this entire month of February you can play along with our Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge which has the theme of "Hearts". Some changes are being made to the challenge blog, so pop over to have a look. Make sure your card is Christmas or winter related to be eligible to win a lovely stamp set!

I am trying to scale down my scrap pile considerably, so once again I delved into my scraps and found some really beautiful cutoffs to use in my card. The peach card is so shiny and beautiful, perhaps the colour theme is a little unusual for a Christmas card but I think it turned out nice anyway.

How did I create those hearts? Fairly easy: I had a look through the junk mail :) There were some heart-shaped sticker coupons there, all I did was stick them to the back of the DP and cut around them. Works really well and you get a very sturdy embellishment :)

* Champagne Crafter's Companion Pearl base card
* Studio Light Decoupage image
* K&Co Earth Tones Solid Mat DP & Crafter's Companion Pearl card
* Orange ink
* Scalloped circle punch (I've used what was left once I punched out the circle, cut it in half and used it to decorate behind the image)
* Brads and scraps of assorted card and papers from stash

* Crimbo Crackers (No people or animals - I hope snow men don't count as people!)
* Papercraft Star (Hearts)
* Sparkles Christmas (Anything Goes + Blog Hop!)
* Christmas Inspirations (Anything Goes)
* Pollycraft (Chill Out, I'd say snow men are pretty chilled!)
* Craft Your Passion (Anything Goes, but no patterned paper)
* There She Goes (Use a Negative Die Cut, hope my card qualifies!)
* Scrapbook Sisters (Anything Goes)
* Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes)
* Shopping Our Stash (Hearts, Valentines and/or Lace)

Hope you like my little Crimbo card, why don't you participate in the challenge, you still have a couple of weeks :)
