Papertrey Playhouse Challenge #3

So excited to finally be able to play along with the third challenge over at the Papertrey Playhouse!! Krista was our host for this challenge and she challenged up to use tags on our creations. But not only that...she challenged us to find inspiration from the Papertrey Design Team!! This part was easy for me as I am inspired on a daily basis by the DT and the projects they feature on their personal blogs!! I found the tag part of the challenge to be the most challenging to me. I love tags don't get me wrong, but I often use them more in my scrapbooking than in my I loved this was a real challenge for me.

Then, I participated in the most recent Papertrey Blog Hop...and holy moly did I love that card that Nichole featured on her blog the day of the Hop. Since I needed a few more Hanukkah cards, I figured this would be a perfect fit. 

Here's what I came up with...
I changed it up a little bit using yet another Clear Card as the base, and I used the new Blueberry Sky with Vintage Cream. I did my stamping with Versamark and Smokey Shadow. My menorah is a little off center (and it only slightly bothers me), but with the tag also being off center, I am trying not to let it bother me too much...not entirely succeeding (and I am thinking I will need to chalk this one up to great effort and recreate it before sending it).

You're likely to see a bunch of Christmas Cards here very soon as I am going to be playing along with one of my favorite papercrafters, Kristina Werner, as she starts up the 2010 Holiday Card Series over on her blog today.

Happy November and thanks for stopping by!!
