Festive Friday: Merry Christmas

Happy Friday!  I'm popping in with my inspiration card for Festive Friday. I love the crisp red ribbon against the white chair covers.  Beautiful inspiration.  My card was inspired by my "need" to use my new Simon Says die. (Ignore my smudgy fingers on the die...I should have redone it but was in a bit of a hurry). I finished it off with the pine cone die and a touch of shimmer.

Be sure to pop on over to the Festive Friday blog where I have no doubt you'll be inspired. I look forward to being inspired by your creations.

Oops, guess the sled got lost in the "to do later" pile… love this die cut. What smudge? Grin… the person who receives this card will love it and probably blame one of your boys.

Awesome die and awesome card. Love the red + white! What did you use for the background stamp on the red cardstock? Or is that an impression plate? Either way it's a cool touch.

Beautiful card Lynn, now I know what do with that frame! Do not see a smudge anywhere! ;)

I agree with the others, I don't see a smudge anywhere. It is a lovely card! I got this die too and haven't used it yet. You've inspired me to get it out! Beautiful work!

Another lovely creation, Lynn. This is just gorgeous, and I love your take on the inspiration photo. Love the dies. I think the little strip of the dp under the sentiment on the frame is perfect. Oh, and smudge? Fudge! Sweet, sweet card. Have a wonderful weekend. : ) Bev
