Let's Go Caroling!

Day two of Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks of some totally adorable sets being released Nov. 1st. This set is called Billy & Maggie Carolers by Wendy Hall. Talk about sweet! Being a self-proclaimed lazy stamper, I stepped out of my box and not only paper pieced Maggie's skirt but cut out that adorable little kittie and popped him up! Wow, I'm tired now!!!! LOL!!! The DT was challenged with the designer papers and ribbon to use on a project. I loved the colors and the way they coordinated so wonderfully. Colors of cardstock I used were Kiwi kiss, Baja breeze, and Purely pomegranate (trying to use up my stash!). The kiwi layer was embossed with the Allegro folder.
Now Billy is so handsome in his tux of blue and gray. I used DaisyDs paper I found in my scrap bin for this sketch we were challenged with. Of course I had to use my Cuttlebug once more, this time using the Swiss Dots folder. Fun ribbon from the Dollar Store and the fabulous Glitter Dots from Gina K Designs and the card is complete.
