Playing Along with the Paper Craft Crew, Paper Players, and SUO

Hello and welcome back! It's been ages since I posted, but I have been busy recently. Three weeks ago, I got a new knee! Rehab has been grueling, so I'm glad to have an outlet for relaxation, but it's been hard to get motivated. This week's challenges at Paper Craft Crew,  Paper Players, and SUO Challenges inspired me to create this evening.

With Thanksgiving over and Christmas right around the corner, it was time for a holiday card. Here's what I came up with:

The color palette was inspired by the Paper Craft Crew. I created a background paper using that cute moose from Jolly Friends stamped in Crumb Cake. I added a piece of the Candy Cane Lane DSP and a Garden Green banner tied with the red and white Candy Cane Lane bakers twine. The greeting is from Tin of Tags set stamped in Garden Green and cut out with the Stitched Shapes framelits. Pretty quick and easy!

I'm hoping to get working on my Christmas cards this week, if I survive my physical therapy! :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
