My STAMPlorations supplies:
Layered Holly, Peace Love Joy CUTplorations die

I actually used light grey card stock - it does not really show and my camera simply can not handle purple - it always comes out way too blue.... oh well. I spare you any explanations, I don't think you have trouble figuring out how I made this card...
Here is another view of it:

Our rules and prizes:
Players can link up as many projects as they want (1 project per blog post)
Players must use at least 1 STAMPlorations product (stamp, stencil, die, or coloring page, or digi stamp)
Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC each to the 2 top picks
If there are more than 25 entries: 1 player will be randomly drawn to win her choice of CUTplorations dies worth up to $15

And don't forget:
to get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store

Sounds enticing? I sure hope so!
See you at the challenge!

Oh my. Loving your take on the inspiration...the card is truly lovely and I can just imagine how the purple looks on the pale grey. I hate it when out tools don't work properly but it doesn't matter in this case because your card is so beautiful.

Fabulous card Cornelia. Love your take on the photo with those beautiful leaves and berries. The gold elements adds so much to it. Great sentiment. Purple is always hard to photograph worse luck.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
