Vintage Christmas

The Countdown is on now!!  This is the mid-month inspiration post for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and that means there are only 10 days until Christmas!!  Yikes, I'm so not ready.  I don't even think I have all my Christmas cards made, yet.  But here is one to add to the pile And give you some inspiration along the way.  Don't forget, you have until December 31 to play along with us.  Even if you have all your cards finished for this year, you can always start on next year's!
 I had the long strip of paper that goes down the side of my card sitting on my desk (it's part of a a pad I am trying to use up and now have only 3 small squares left!) and knew it would be perfect for a pop of color on a CAS card.  I added a narrow strip of torn mulberry paper since I have recently rekindled my love for it, and layered the image panel on top.  The sentiment banner looked just a little too plain for my liking and I noticed that another small rectangle of paper sitting on the desk would be perfect for framing the sentiment.  Then I had only this small strip of it left and decided it was perfect for highlighting the sentiment on the inside!  Now . . . if I could only figure out what to do with those remaining 3 pieces . . .
I hope you will get a chance to play along this month.  I love Christmas and I love seeing what you come up with.

Hi Heather. I love this CAS card! All the attention goes straight to the image which is fantastic. Maybe you could cut the left-over strips up and make a christmas tree with them??? There's another card for you :)
