Silent Night

Oh, my goodness!!  It's less than two weeks until Christmas!  Are your Christmas cards finished, yet?  Mine should be all done, but not a single one has been put in the mail yet.  I guess I'd better get working on it.  Since it is the middle of the month, I have some inspiration for you for Crafty Hazlenut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  You have until the end of the month to play and as long as your project is Christmas related, you are good to go!  Here is my card:
I had the red patterned paper sitting on my desk from another project I had just finished and thought it would be fun to use up some more of it.  Unfortunately, I think it was a little too busy for this design, but I did use up a good amount of it.  And it really creates a fun color combo with the lime green.  Traditional, yet a  bit modern, too.  And the bow was recycled from a birthday present packaging, so using scraps AND recycling on the same card.  A win-win situation in my book. : )  I hope you already have all you cards finished and mailed and now you can sit back and relax and enjoy the holiday season.  But just in case you haven't, come on and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you create.
