Hello!! I have a card I made for Diana to take to CHA in January!  It is so fun to work with non Christmas colors for a bit!! Here, I've used some favorites-fuchsia pink, turquoise and chocolate brown!  Yummy!
 I made the style of card i think is called a tent card.  It's a base (expresso) that is 4.25x 4.25.  I stamped #3096 MINI TILDA WITH SNOW HEART (Diana has a deal on sets of two AND new ones are coming this week!!)  on xpress it blending card and colored with my copics.  Then I cut the frame shape (spellbinders label) from PTIs Hawaiin shores.  While in the dies I attempted to stamp my gingham plaid onto it.  It doesn't show well and next time I will use a darker ink.
The frame part is mounted on SU dimensional pieces and stickles are added wherever possible!  The lacy dp is from a 6 x6 Lilybee pad called Head over Heels.  Lovely papers!
When I was shopping with Lisa on Friday I bought this MS punch around the page set. I punched my border from white and then used the tiny punch snowflakes around my frame.  They have stickles on them too!  My pink paper is Purely Pomegranate (what else :)
And, finally here is the inside with a snowflake border punch I got last year.  It's covered with stickles too!  (And I stamped the plaid in a better color for my card stock!)
Remember you have the rest of January to participate in our Magnolia-licious challenge!! It's ANYTHING GOES with the option of lace (of any kind!).
Thanks for visiting today!  It's off to work for me again, but with some snowy weather we can always hope for a snow day!
Hugs, cheryl
