One more card

Well, today I made a card that I liked and I decided that I wanted to blog it! Go figure! This card was inspired by one of the great stampers of our time, Laurly from Splitcoast Stampers. Here is here gorgeous card. I saw this card and since I had the background paper already I knew I wanted to make some version of this card. I didn't have that stamp that she used or really anything like it so I decided to use the new set I got for my Christmas cards, Big on Christmas. It is really cute!!!
I had school last night and got home at about midnight. We stayed up until one catching up on missed episodes of the Office! Love that show! My stamp room was quite the mess so I didn't know if I would have to courage to go in this morning. But, after doing my morning blog surfing, I got inspired. I also broke into my new Simply Scrappin' kit, Winter Bright! I ADORE the colors in this kit! I know it will get alot of use. I was supposed to get to work on my card sets I give for Christmas gifts, but I didn't. Bad bad me!! :)

Supplies for this card:
Stamps: Big on Christmas
Ink: basic black, bordering blue, real red, only orange, mellow moss
Paper: Basic Grey Blitzen collection, real read, paper from Winter Bright SS kit
Accessories: red gingham ribbon, paper piercing kit, white gel pen, rhinestone brads fire
