Be Merry and Bright

Good morning! I pulled out this sheet of Basic Grey Nook & Pantry patterned paper out a couple of days ago, but it didn't quite work with my layout, so I set it aside. I noticed it sitting on my craft table, matted and already stitched, so I decided to use it with Card Positionings Systems Sketch 145. When I first saw the sketch, I immediately thought of Claire's set, Seasons of Love - Tags, so I stamped the star and sentiment and cut it out with my largest star Nestability. She has several sets like this that are Nestie friendly -- they are SO fun and versatile!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
