Winter Angel Art Challenge

I am participating in a challenge with other Angel friends to create a project or card using any current TAC stamps and products with the theme of "Winter". This is a recent card I created using the "Simply Christmas" and "Holiday Magic" stamp sets. The paper is TAC's Juliette patterned paper and Kraft & Bazzill cardstock.

My personal challenge when I created this card was to use a very nontraditional patterned paper and make it look Christmasy. When I saw this piece I knew it was what I was looking for. This is a very floral set of patterned paper but this piece just reminds me of peppermint candies for some reason. So, my challenge to you would be to not put your paper in a "box". Just because you bought it with the intention of using it for one purpose, doesn't mean that you can't find other purposes for it. This is really a way to get the most out of your paper too!

Listed below are other Angels who participated in this challenge. You can click on their names and be directed to their blog so that you can see the fun "winter" creations that they came up with!

I love your card! The paper is my favorite, of course, but I love the design and how it all came together. I agree with you to keep thinking outside the box with our supplies to get more mileage out of them!

Love it! The round shapes on the patterned paper looks like peppermint starlite candies when you pair it with a Christmas theme!
