Christmas Houndstooth and buttons challenge

I have borrowed two challenges this weekend to inspire me to make a card.
The Elite Challenges have 3 new challenges every month and Paper Pals Arts have one.
So this is the card I made this morning.
 The Elite challenge was by way of a sketch (If you turn to page 116 in your Stampin' Up 2011 catalogue you will see the layout that I got this from).
And the Paper Pals Arts challenge was a photo inspiration. I just took some of my colours from there and the fun flower was already cut and on my table.
 In real life the Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade are very vibrant together. They are a little paler in these pictures. Perhaps I need to tweak the colours in my browser.
Featured products I have used are:
Houndstooth embossing folder
Buttons Embosslits no 5. (on sale 10% off - Don't miss the Big shot special this month)
Fun Flowers Die
Two Tags Die
Pear Pizzaz seam binding ribbon
Ice circle Rhinestone brad.
Timeless Type alphabet dies
corner rounder, sponges and
'Heard from the heart' stampset.


  1. Love the texture and the way you combined everything! The large tag is wonderful! So glad you joined us at PPA!

  2. What a fun Christmas card! I love all your fun embellishments! Thanks for playing along this week at Pals Paper Arts! :)
