Double Inspiration

I have to admit, Paper Smooches SPARKS has me all confused -- they've messed around with their dates! And you know I tend to get my SPARKS challenge cards in the last evening. But not this week... I'm posting it today, so there! 
This week is a "picture perfect" inspiration challenge:

Right away, I liked the red and white colour scheme and all the white space. I also liked the ornaments, but how to incorporate that? I went for a little browse, and found this on my Pinterest Christmas board. Here's how my brain put everything together: 

Lots of clean white space, some sweet Paper Smooches images and a bright red sentiment. It's very clean and simple, but I've decided I like it that way. ;)

Supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park Holly Jolly patterned paper, Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes, Warm Hearts & Woofers and Tweeters & Unity/Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder stamps, Memories black & Stampin' Up real red inks, Winsor & Newton iridescent medium, Spica atyou silver marker, Spellbinders circle die, EK Success 1" circle punch, Creative Memories corner-rounding punch, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!
