Wishing You Holiday Happiness

Good morning! I just love the Taylored Expressions set, Wings of Joy! For my card today, I used the sweet image featuring the birdies holding the line of socks, mittens and hats. Not only do I have another card for my Christmas stash, but I was also able to play along with a couple of challenges this week. First off is Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #46. The theme this week is to use some sort of winter clothing. Secondly, I used the colors of Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream and Aqua Mist for the "Just Us Girls" Challenge #3. Finally, I was attempting to play along with CPS138, but I ended up omitting one of the panels and adding a trio of pearls instead.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
