Phindy's Shaped Card Challenge

Recently one of my cards got chosen as card of the Week at Phindy's Place and lucky me received a $5 gift certificate to use in Phindy's store. I chose the cute snowman stamp that I used below and another gorgeous spring stamp, which I am sure I will be using soon too.

I know, Christmas is over, and won't come again for a long time, but every year I seem to be running into the same problem, not having enough cards to mail out and stressing. So I am challenging myself to create (at least) one Christmas card a month, so I won't have that problem again this year.


This image is called "Back to Nature". I colored it using derwent coloursoft pencils.
The papers I used are from my stash, I don't remember what company they are from.

As this week's Challenge at Phindy's Place is "Shaped Cards", I decided to make a center step card. I have only made this shape once before. Instructions can be found here.

I would love to combine the following challenges today:

Photobucket

And that is all for today, I hope you liked my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back again on Monday with a Card for Day 5 of Whimsy Stamps New Release Showcase.

Enjoy your weekend!
