Keeping it simple for Monday FUN-day...

...and we all know how 'good' I am at that!  HA!
Well, I must say that although CAS cards aren't my thing, this one was a really FUN challenge and worked out well with the new "Clearly Christmas" set from The Greeting Farm!

Today's challenge for "Monday FUN-day" on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog is to use NO DP and at least 1 ribbon.  Um, excuse me?  NO DP?  Yikes!   Even our precious Lisa who is issuing today's challenge said she looked at her huge stack of 6x6 pads and wondered if she had made a mistake, heehee.  Alas, the challenge came out quite well over on the FFC blog so I hope you'll all check it out!


It literally took 10 minutes to make this card, start to finish.  I'd probably tweak it a bit, but for mass-production of Christmas cards, this one could work!  I used the Clearly Christmas set, stamped it and outlined the stars with a light yellow Copic before using Stickles in Crystal.  I used some Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.com ( I love this gingham pattern!) and tied it off with a button and voila!  done :)

Be sure to check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog for all the rules and to enter your creation this week to WIN a single stamp of choice!    Our RETRO-fresh monthly challenge is also coming up this Wednesday so be on the lookout for that as well!  In the meantime, won't you please stop by these lovely and talented ladies who make up our Farm Fresh Challenge team?




See you tomorrow with another creation using the new Clear stamp sets from The Greeting Farm!
