Joyeux Noel...

October 1st means it's time to start thinking about Christmas, right?  Well, maybe not for the average person but for the crafter/cardmaker we need to get moving.  This week's Paper Players challenge was the perfect way to motivate me to start my Christmas cards. 

Here's my Joyeux Noel card.  I love how it turned out!  I got the cute Eiffel Tower stamp at Michaels last year and I was excited to finally get around to using it. 

For the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge I went with a tic tac toe across the top:

  • Christmas - The Eiffel Tower stamp
  • Sparkle/Bling - I used gold Stickles for the holly berries.
  • Ribbon- The green Stampin' Up ribbon finished off this card in the most perfect way.

The card ideas for this challenge are endless.  I can't wait to create some more.  Head over to The Paper Players and see what the other talented cardmakers are up to.

That stamp is gorgeous Debra & you have created a lovely card with it. The red poinsettias & holly really pop on the neutral background. Thanks for playing all with The Paper Players. :)
