Merry and Bright!

Hi's Sonya from Sonya's Paper Trail today and I'm sharing a holiday greeting card today.  I have a lot of holiday cards yet to make so I'm making cards in "bulk".  When I make cards like this, I like to do them in multiples of six.  It's enough to quickly build up a supply, but not so many that I get tired of making that design.  Here's the card I would like to share with you all today:

Want in on a little secret?  

Everything on this card is really, really old!  The papers are from a DCWV stack from several years ago.  The papers were not meant to coordinate, but I love the striped paper against the polka dotted blue paper.  The stamped image was a RAK I received from a friend on the Cricut message board a couple of years ago.  I colored it with my Copic Markers and added some Stickles for the snowy effect.  The snowflake brad is also rather vintage!  And the little sentiment is from My Craft Spot.  I used my Cricut for the shape I stamped on, as well as the little tag.  The cartridges were Storybook and George and Basic Shapes.  

Here's a close up of my coloring for you.  Oh how I love snowmen!!

I hope I have inspired you to look at your crafty supplies to find some treasures that you may have been holding onto for awhile.  I know one of my goals in 2014 is going to be to use more of what is already in my craft room.  Want to join me in that challenge?!

Have a super day!
