heartfelt holiday wishes



Happy Friday- it's FWF and Stamp Simply!

Today's stamp simply challenge is all about NON traditional Christmas colors!



So- my card looks to be red, but that is melon mambo - not red!  I stamped the frame from this months KOM picture perfect onto a labels five shape and then stamped the sentiment in the pear color.  I added a few rhinestones, some MME paper, and more twine over the snowflake embossed pink layer.

Pretty CAS and snazzy at the same time! I am liking how this turned out :)
