Brown Paper Packages

Happy Thanksgiving USA folks.
My husband prepared a very good meal for us today (except for the sweet potatoes - I fix that because he won't eat them!).
Hope you had a beautiful day regardless of where you live.

I have a Christmas/holiday card to share tonight.  As I watch my taped versions of The Voice, I create with paper as they sing their hearts out.  I get very inspired...

I used a sketch from Feeling Sketchy.  I was a little unconventional with my colors - I used kraft paper to mount everything, but brought out the Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and The Cat's Pajamas red/white twine.  The dp is Bazzill Basics.  I used nesties to cut out the sentiment from IO.  I used Spellbinders dies for the fishtails.  The snowflake charm came from my stash.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Christmas
Rhedd & Rosie's - Christmas
Tip Top Tuesday - use kraft card
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. For some reason seeing this card is de ja vue! Perhaps because I just saw this stamp online…but I think the paper matches this wording perfectly. When I saw this stamp (just a few minutes ago) I envisioned a card in tan tones…similar to a package and then I found this one and it was so similar to what I envisioned. Now that's something huh? BTW, I love this paper. Wish I could find curtains like this. LOL

  2. Gorgeous card Cathy :-) I lover the sentiment ! FAB :-)
