A Classy Christmas at the Lodge!

Hello All!

So good to be working on a Card again!

It’s been too long! I have been working on replenishing items

that I sold at the Craft Fair here in the Harbour!

I will be at the Elks Club on Saturday! Wish me Luck!

 

On to Today’s Card!

Today’s Card if for 2 Challengers!

Both are Inspirational Photos with themes!

 

The first Challenger is Inspired By #46

The theme: Classy Christmas

IB_46

 

The second Challenger is Stamp Ink Paper #176

the theme: At the Lodge

SIP-176-At-the-Lodge

I picked up on the ‘wood’ in both photos and went with it!

I wanted a ‘lodge-y’ look with a pop of Class!

Hence the white Christmas Tree!

 

Here is my Card!

I pieced together all the elements!

Kind of like…cabin, wood pile, wool blanket, copper pots with a

modern touch with a white Christmas tree!

I really like how my card turned out! I was able to piece all

those rustic and contemporary together!

Kind of like what I do today!

 

Here is the simple inside of my Card!
