Whimsical holiday card - DDSC8

This card is quite simple for me - no patterned paper *GASPS*!! I'm very inspired by Sandra V's simple but whimsical style, and I was channeling her thru this creation.

This card is also for Whimsical Wednesdays'
The Diedrich Dare. The sketch was drawn by a 9-yr-old...I see a future stamper :)! There was also a fun quiz linked on the blog. If you don't know me personally, I LOVE filling out surveys but it was a bit challengeing. Look for it at the end of this blog, he he!

So you're probably asking, hmmm, this is a Holiday card?? There's no snow, no Santa Claus. See, I live in California so we never have white Christmases (although I just came from Lake Tahoe and the white scene was sooo beautiful!). Plus, I enjoy using non-traditional colors for Xmas cards.

The CS is Bazzill. The clear sticker is from Hambly. The tags are from Martha Stewart. The brads & trees sticker (don't they look like Christmas tree lights?) are from American Crafts. The ribbons are from KI Memories. The flower stickers are from Prima & remind me of colorful snowflakes. Other supplies - Copics, Gina K CS, Alice in Wonderland Anya, twine.
