I have no doubt you do Christmas up in style Elise! :) I love this card! My favorite parts are the twine...oh my...why do I never think to do this...adds the perfect holiday feel and the yummy snowflakes! Love your take on the challenge!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Elise, I love how you described us as hoarders: SO TRUE! LOL (at least for myself) I keep every little trinket I might find in a parking lot or that someone is throwing away. Sometimes, I have to force myself to just let go of those things.

Your card is full of neat goodies: the twine flower center, the kraft die cuts, those puffy snowflakes. Very cool!

Smiles, Paula
