An Old Fashioned Christmas!

Good afternoon,,,,,,,,,,,anyone who knows me KNOWS that I love Justrite stamps! They have to be one of my favorite stamp companies EVERRR. Every two weeks they offer a challenge using their stamps,,,,,I've entered a few times,,,,,and have decided to enter more often,,,,,,,,the prizes are phenomenal,,,,,,,,and the practice never hurts!

so, without further ado, my first entry to the "Opposites Attract" challenge over at Justrite.  We were to pick two colors opposite on the color wheel and use any shade of those colors to create a project with. I chose red and green, since I really NEED Christmas cards,,,,,

I used some lovely K and Company Christmas paper for the base of my kraft card.  I stamped my image from the Old Fashioned Christmas set onto white paper, colored with copics and then cut it out with Ovals large,,,,,,,,I matted it on 2010 Snowflake Pendants and two layers of Holly Motifs, which I cut into two,,the whole rests on a ruffled red striped ribbon, which I've accented with a red and white polka dot ribbon,,,,,a red butterfly bow and a spellbinders candy cane that I have inked through the die completes the card.

Here's a close up of this gorgeous stamp!

I hope you enjoyed the card,,,,,,,,,run on over to the Justrite Inspirations blog to upload YOUR Opposites Attract card or project,,,,,,,,the prizes are really amazing! Since they allow you to enter multiple times, I am hoping to have one more project up for the challenge before it closes!

Thanks for looking!!!!!!!
