Oops--forgot someone!



Hubby just remembered yesterday that he wanted to send a card to a lady in Iowa who was a huge help to him researching his family there. We decided it could just be for the holiday season since it won't make it before Christmas.  I wanted to enter the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, so at least I didn't have to quickly think of a design.  My MME paper pad was still out (actually everything is still out!) & with the snowflake choices I thought it'd work well. 
I hand cut the flags & used MFT Notched Border for the top piece. Love this old Stampendous! sentiment which is stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray. Wanted it pretty flat for mailing & I have to say, sequins have grown on me! Hopefully this will be a nice surprise for that sweet lady. I'm also entering the December CAS challenge at Stampendous! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to Add: We can enter up to 6 cards this time, so I'm adding this to Pixies Snippets Playground.

  6. LOVE this, Greta! The paper combination you've chosen is soooo eye-catching (why I didn't order that MME pad is beyond me! Silly!), and the merry wishes, with an array of sequins: perfect! I've had a couple of last minute requests from my husband, too - going the 'whimsical' route and hoping to post them soon! The lady in Iowa will be delighted when this appears in her mailbox! Fabulous!! Calling winner, winner!! Hugs~c
