Merry Christmas

For our clean and simple challenge this week at The Outlawz we're doing Christmas in July. We have a forever bachelor friend that I create a more masculine card for so I think this one will be it. For the background, I scored some cream cardstock then rubbed 3 different ink pads (caramel, cocoa and gray) over it in hopes of creating a woodgrain look. The image is from Avery Elle and called Winter Wreath. Yep, I cut it out with the die set found HERE. The sentiment from Paper Trey Ink (Inside & Out: Holiday Stamp Set) is gold embossed. Now it's time to show us your CAS Christmas creation over at The Outlawz.

Challenges I'm submitting my card to include:
Broken Fairy Challenge - Anything Goes with a twist, Christmas in July
Just Add Ink - Photo Inspiration
Moving Along With the Times - No Designer Paper
Crafty Creations - Clean & Simple
Ike's World - Christmas in July
