Recipe Challenge

It's tuesday which means it's time for another recipe challenge card. This week's challenge was to use paint, buttons and distressing. This card came together perfectly for me and I love how it turned out! I love the shabby chic look of it. I painted the cardboard, the edges of the pink paper and the punched out snowflake too. I think I need to use paint more :) You can't really see it to well but the little tag off the snowflake says Merry Christmas.

OK here's my card.

I just wanted to note too that at the beginning of the year I joined a challenge to make my Christmas cards monthly so by the end of Oct. I would have them all complete. I had to make 4 cards a month in order to have what I needed to send out. Well yesterday I counted all my christmas cards and I have 39 of them made! Wooo hooo! I missed some months but obviously I made it up somewhere along the way lol. So just one more to make and I met my goal! I will probably make some more to have for my stash though.

And my update for world card making day, I didn't make any cards, I actually didn't scrap at all on saturday. I really do need to get back into it though, I have too many things I want to get done. I also have a busy week/weekend ahead of me.

Have a great day everyone!
