Cream and Blue Christmas

Today's challenge at Beccy's blog is to use a familiar item in an unusual way.  This card represents a couple of aspects - though they may not be readily visible.  My cards usually open from the top (just habit) and this opens from the left.  Secondly, the die cut is an opening in the blue layer, rather than have the image layer on top.  The edge is embossed.  By the way, I kind of like the way this fits the Labels 4 die.  Not much more to explain - I used a couple of ribbons and a computer sentiment.  The image is Stampendous.

Great take on the challenge, Dorothy! I love your color choice for this wonderful stamp. Thanks for joining us at CRAFT Challenge!

Well done Dorothy! I like that you have tried a couple of different things with your card. You're right about the stamp fitting nicely with the Labels 4 die, it frames it beautifully. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of change to keep us inspired and interested.
Cheers,
Beccy

This is so pretty! I just love the blue you've used - it frames your central image beautifully. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

You've made me realize that mine always open from the top too! I love the window looking out to the scene. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
