Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Clearly Christmas

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

photo source:

We have a new sponsor, Winnie&Walter, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Clearly Christmas!  A randomly selected participant in the Clearly Christmas challenge will receive a $30 Winnie&Walter shopping code, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I was super excited to play with Winnie & Walter's Winter Woodland stamp set and coordinating Winter Woodland Digital Elements (which are cut files for each of the shapes in the set). I think without our gorgeous challenge photo, I would have done something rustic and woodsy with this set, so I really love how the inspiration photo helped me use this set in a completely different way!

For today's more elegant take, I arranged the pine needles and sprigs underneath a pair of tags, then accented with clear sequins. On top of the tag pair, I placed a silver buck and some loops of silver thread. The stitched rectangle background panel is lightly sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Beautiful card Amy. Love the layers and all the pretty colors. The tag looks great in the middle with the deer and the thread.

Fabulous card, Amy. I love the soft colours, and the lightly sponged blue BG on which everything sits beautifully!

Amy, this is gorgeous! I've always just thought rustic when I've seen this set, too, but these colors are fabulous. You've inspired me!
