Not a Creature was Stirring...

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house; Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. -Henry Livingston I made this card this weekend for Michelle's Super fun WCMD Challenge. The challenge was to pick a flag from any country and make a card based on it's colors...well, I Really wanted to use my new Merry Days of Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye, so I went on a hunt for a flag that would work. :) Cheating? Maybe, but I freely admit to making challenges work for Me! :D I found the Azerbaijan flag and it had Red, Light Blue and Green, so it worked Perfectly!

The Crazy 4 Challenges challenge this week is to add sewing to your card so decided to sew the plaid layer to the red background layer...then I got the smart idea to sew some bigger zig zag stitches to the image panel...not my smartest decision, but overall I am happy with how the card came out.

You will notice as Christmas gets closer that I am Addicted to snowflakes, I just got in a few packs of Jolee's Snowflake stickers for the store and HAD to grab a few for me! :)
The inside sentiment is from an H&M Stamps set I picked up a few months ago...and you see that??? Another snowflake! ;) This one is a MS Punch....Supplies:
Christmas Stocking (Stampavie)
Merry Days of Christmas (My Mind's Eye,) Textured Card Base (DCWV,) White CS (PTI)
Ink: Copic Markers,
Memento Black, Old Paper Distress Ink
Misc: Snowflake Stickers, Snowflake Punch, Stardust Stickles, Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Distressing Tool, Adhesive Foam
