Neutral Noel.....


The sixth prompt over at Jingle Belles is Neutral Noel and the ladies have given us this beautiful photo as inspiration of Pottery Barn Holiday cushions. The snowflake cushion caught my eye straight away so that was my inspiration for my card.


I stamped two different sized snowflakes from the Inspired by Stamping Winter Wonderland stamp set in SU Crumb Cake and diecut them. I then diecut a Nestabilities label to mat the snowflake and stitched around the paper, adding some lace and buttons.

Supplies
Stamps- IBS Winterwonderland, SU For My Family
Papers- Websters Pages
Pretties- SU Lace, Buttons, Su Twine
Nesties- Labels 1, Snowflakes

My pile of Christmas cards are growing, I'll hopefully have them all made by the end of November, no last minute panic like I usually do.
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend and I'll be back soon to show you what I've been crocheting with the leftover yarn from the wash cloths.
