DL.ART September Linky Challenge

Happy September!! Wow, this year is flying by so fast!! It's time for a new monthly linky challenge at DL.ART and as always, the monthly theme is Anything Goes. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off at DL.ART :)


In honor of how fast this year is speeding by, I decided to start on Christmas cards. For my cards, I've used (NBUS) Maja Designs Vintage Winter papers. I love this paper stack!!


I stitched the bottom layer to the card base and distressed all of the edges with a Zutter DIA.


This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Christmas Red from The Traditional Christmas Bundle. Layered under the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are Impression Obsession Pine Branches and Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs. The tag was cut from the papers and tied with Red Twine from Diana's shop.


This beautiful ribbon is Royal Blue from The Blues Bundle. The Blue Twine on the tag is also from the DL.ART store. Dec. 25 is from My creative time and it was popped up with foam for dimension. The snowflakes are from Impression Obsession's Small Snowflake set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) djkardkreations NBUS #7 - Anything Goes using new (Maja Designs paper)


2) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack - Cut It Up

4) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
5) Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Anything Goes project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

My sweetest friend, I admired these so greatly the other day that I thought I left a comment... only last night did I realize I had not. :( These are stunningly beautiful, Lisa! You have made them perfectly wintry in the loveliest way imaginable. The papers are darling and I love how you nestled in the sweet tag and topped it with the fabulous dec. 25th. The pine braces are gorgeous and I am so in love with the lace and ribbon. Inspiring as always, my dearest Lisa! Thank you for the festive delight. I hope you're having a blessed weekend!
