Picture Perfect Christmas Wishes

Now I want to know, who else immediately thought Christmas when they saw these colors? What, no one???!!! I love making non-traditional color Christmas cards, and this combo from Picture Perfect Creations screamed that to me!!!!!

I used a set from PaperTrey Ink that hasn't seen ink in a long time, if at all. Yes, I have that many stamps that I'm still finding ones that haven't seen ink!!! Anyway, I do want to point out that I stamped a little design on the red strip, not in Poppy Parade because I don't have that ink, but when I initally stamped it, it looked fine. As I was finishing up the card the stamped design was growing fainter and fainter until it is as you see it here, solid red. Weird that it absorbed right into the paper like that! Of course it was too late for me to try and fix it, so a solid red strip it is!!
