Tis' the season *super non-traditional*

hey everyone! i woke up at 4:45 this morning...UGH...but i figured i'd make the most of it and be productive! sooooo NOT holiday colors on this card, but i LOVE how it turned out...a friend of mine had a baby boy at the beginning of this year, and i thought these colors were perfect (also yellow and blue are her fav colors)...anyhoo, i cut the ornament from my Christmas Cheer cartridge at 2.25 inches...the circle and scallop are cut from Winter Woodland (my FAV circle and scallop!)...i tied on some embroidery floss and called it done. ;o)

be sure to check back later today to see my card for challenge 18 over at http://peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ then get busy and make a card and JOIN IN ON THE FUN!
