STAMP SOMETHING CHALLENGE

Happy Friday all!!! Today's Stamp Something Challenge is to stamp simply - no multiple layers, just one! So, I kept my card really simple using white card stock (hence the green background) and embossing my Christmas tree image and sentiment. I actually like doing these kinds of cards, I think they turn out very elegant most of the time! It also is pretty easy to put together!! Please make sure to stop by the Stamp Something site: it is our sixth anniversary and to celebrate, we are giving away some very awesome blog candy!! Besides, you don't want to miss out on the rest of the DT samples, they are all really gorgeous!! And, why not give the challenge a try and upload your take to the site? We would love to see what you create AND it puts you in the drawing for some fabulous candy! So, I will leave you with the recipe, as I have a very busy day ahead of me - tonight Tony and I are going to see Travis Tritt in concert, whoohooo!! But, have to get the house cleaned first, lol! So, enjoy your Friday and have a fabulous weekend!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Whisper White Card Stock
Ink - Old Olive, Ruby Red Craft Stampin' Pads
Stamps - Snow Swirled, Best Yet
Accessories - Alpine Ribbon, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Heat Gun
