I was scouring the web for a sketch challenge because I need more Christmas cards, and I found The Friday Mashup Challenge. What a great idea! At first I thought I wouldn't be able to participate in the "mashup," as I'm in the minority, and I actually don't tend to hoard random items for later crafting use. I'm a tosser for the most part. I have to be since the hubby likes to keep everything... we only have so much room! But I found some beautiful golden ribbon hidden away on a shelf that I was happy to be able to use.
I also got to use a stamp that I hadn't inked up yet, an embossing folder that was still in the wrapping, and the newsprint DSP went into the paper cutter for the first time. All in all, a success, I'd say. Here's my card:
