Happy Wednesday!  The last one of 2017; can you believe it!?  Today begins another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  It's a busy time of the year , so you'll enjoy this one: Anything Goes!  My parents' anniversary is the day after Christmas; here is the card I created for them:
I used some Christmas themed elements since it IS the day after Christmas, but I don't think it looks too Christmas-y with the pink and green color scheme (the papers are from a Christmas pack).  The gold, partial doily die cut and the kraft cirlce were in my bits and pieces stash and the circle would have been except I actually messed up the first stamping on it and had to cut a second one.  Argh!
I hope you will play along with us in our last challenge of the year.   I can't wait to see what you create!
