Here is my sample for today challenge over at Our Creative Corner. We started a NEW month and Jenny Gropp is our hostess for December. Jenny has challenged the OCC to the Twelve Day's of Christmas. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use favorite stamps and supplies.

Since I don't own any stamps from the Twelve Days of Christmas, I googled the challenge and decided to printed the music onto kraft cardstock. I inked up the background to give it a warm vintage glow. For some extra fun, I created a ornament using my circle Nestabilities.

The tree image is from a stamp set by Stamps and Smiles called Trim a Tree. The image was stamped in garden green ink and then I added some glue & glitter. To finish off my card, I add two white doves which I also glued and dusted with glitter.

To see more samples using the Twelve Day's of Christmas, please stop by the OCC , the Design Team have been busy creating some really fun designs!!

Have a fun weekend ~ See you Monday with out first set of sneak peeks for Stamps and Smiles.

Another terrific card, Jennifer. I love the warm vintage look of the inked kraft. What a great idea to print the music directly onto the kraft CS. That chunky glitter is too cool too! It really gives a snowy look. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
