Christmas Card for PTI's Make It Monday!!!

Good morning, everyone!!!

I have to say that I am totally shocked that I have not done a MIM challenge since July 7th!!!  What's wrong with me???  I know........It was a busy, busy summer, but I had no idea it's been that long!

So, this MIM focus is on creating a background using non-background stamps.  Pretty cool idea and a totally different way to look at your stamps.  I chose to use my "new to me" Winter Swirls stamp set (I got it in the PTI sell/trade thread).   You can take a peek at the PaperTrey Ink Make It Monday #31 video by Dawn McVey by going to Nichole's blog.

I absolutely love how this background turned out.  The cranberry and browns work so well together!
Loving that ribbon, too!

Here's the Make It Monday Video, if you are interested in learning this technique:

I also used the Christmas Card #40 Challenge to make it work with the MIM challenge.  Using the cranberry, chocolate and cream made a gorgeous card!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Winter Swirls stamp set
Fillable Frames #10 die
Vintage Cream, Rustic Cream and Dark Chocolate cardstock
VersaFine ink - Vintage Sepia and Crimson Red
Misc. ribbon

Thanks for visiting me today and if you have time, do check out that video it is an awesome technique that I will use again!
