Jingle Belles DECK the Halls

  The Jingle Belles have another very clever play-on-words challenge.  This one truly was a challenge!  I'm not sure I like my finished project, but I will certainly use it to write a little thank you note on the back and toss in a gift bag.  This challenge is the brain child of Sue Culotti, this week's guest designer at Jingle Belles.  Here are the details:
make a freestanding (2.5 x 3.5") xmas-themed Artist Trading Card
add an ATC-sized element to your holiday card
incorporate a playing card into your design
use a recycled xmas card (or an element from
one!) on your (newly made) holiday card!

paper:  K&Co. (background of ATC); doodlebug designs (snowflake and die cut)
snowflake & cupcake:  EAD stickerz
ribbon:  scraps from scrap jar
mini brad:  We R Memory Keepers glitter brad

Sweet ATC, June! It will make a great little note to add to a gift bag. Thanks for playing along with my "guest gig"!

Lots of options on that challenge... and you came up with a cute ATC, June. I personally think it's harder to do the small cards.

well i, for one, think you've done ♥BRILLIANTLY♥ well on the ATC front! i love it! i love the cupcake, obviously (!!!) and that little "fair ribbon" sentiment is SO COOL on an ATC... really dynamic, i love when elements extend your eye in a small space like that!

apart from anything else, you have TOTALLY given me a FABULOUS "excuse" to make ATC's whenever i want to now... b/c YEAH they would be brilliant as "gift notes" or thank you's or even little mini postcards! you are a GENIUS!!!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥
