it's Christmas....

Happy Saturday everyone!! Time for my regularly scheduled Less is More post and this week I am way ahead of the game!  I usually don't have my card done until noon my time, but today I had it done by 8:30 AM!!  And to top it all off... I got another card done, as well.  That leaves me a TON  of time this afternoon to work on some other papercrafting things I need to get done... YAY!!



Okay... on to my LIM card.  This week Chrissis and Mandi have given us LIMettes something easy to work with polka dots!!  Not hard for me to find something polka-dotty and I almost went with my PTI Polka Dot Basics II set until I spied my Penny Black "Starlit" stamp sitting out on the counter.  I had gotten it out a few days ago with the idea I would use it to make a tag for the current Penny Black challenge, but that never happened (although it may still get made into a tag.).    The "Starlit" stamp is perfect for the challenge since the tree is made up entirely of little polka dots.   I stamped it in PTI Pure Poppy on Rustic Cream, matted it with Pure Poppy cardstock and then added some clear rhinestones (SU!).  The ribbon is also PTI's Pure Poppy.   The sentiment is from the WMS set Frame It.  Super clean and super simple.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic Cream & Pure Poppy; Stamps:  PB Starlit & WMS Frame It; Ribbon; PTI; Ink:  PTI;  Gems:  SU!

Fabulous card Rosemary. So fabulous I may have to case this beauty just so I can say I have one Christmas card done. LOL!!!

I like the added bling, and the nicely folded ribbon; really gives it an elegant look.
