Inspired By...#53

Here we go, the start of a new month and a new year of Inspired By Challenges!  Thank you to those of you who have been playing along, I always love seeing everyone's take on the inspiration.

Being December, I went with another holiday inspiration for you.

Such a clean & simple inspiration photo this week.  I can see using the grid, circles, wreaths, colors, a banner....

I went with the CAS and the wreath.  I used my PTI stamp A Wreath for All Seasons, some May Arts Jute twine and a pearl from Want2Scrap.  The main panel is on foam squares for dimension.  I am really trying to make more 'mailable' cards this year as most of mine tend to cost me a fortune to mail!


Since this is the first challenge of the month there will be a prize up for grabs.  This month some SEI goodies for you.



I am entering this into the 10 minute Craft Challenge (I think my card took about 5 minutes)

What a pretty card, Laurel! Love how you're trying to make more "mailable" cards- I need to try doing that too! This is such a great card design; really love the twine addition.

Fabulous card! It could be a tag as well. Love the time element too not that it would only take me that long. I have that stamp set and think I need to try my hand as I need a couple quick cards. Happy Holidays!
