Beccy's Place Day #3 + Heart 2 Heart

Look what I found!  
Some old, retired CTMH Evening Song paper.  
This paper was new when I first started stamping.  It would be wonderful if CTMH would bring it back sometime.  
I was looking for paper that would compliment this beautiful digital poinsettia image from Beccy's Spirit of Christmas digital set, since Beccy's Place Month of Holiday Cards Challenge Day #3 theme is use a digital image.

I created this as a window card for the current challenge theme at Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Through the Window.  The tutorial here on the House of Cards blog, where I will also enter this card in their November Challenge - Stamped, Cut Window technique,  is very simple to follow if you'd like to try it.

Additional challenges:
The Glory of Christmas Challenge #71 - Add Glitter and/or Shine
Vintage Stamping Challenge #38 - Traditional Christmas
Use Your Stuff Challenge - Use Old Stash (paper and stamp)

  9. Wow Debi, your card is absolutely beautiful! The background paper you used is perfect for the image... great choice. I was sorry to read that it's an old piece you had in your stash, I agree that it should be re-released. I love the window design and I also love the circle dies you used with the embossed stitching. Beautiful.
    P.S. You've probably already seen that day 4 is "Wreaths", so here's a hint for day 5.... "it's all about the sentiment".

  10. Beautiful! Love your colours! Thanks for joining our challenge at UYS ♥

  23. Stunning card! The paper you have used is just so perfect for the poinsettia and our theme. The gorgeous added texture to the red circle frames the poinsettia beautifully, I worry that the poinsettia would get lost without it. Thank you so much for entering our November Challenge. I hope we see you again for the December challenge Karen P (DT House of Cards)
