Serendipity Winter Birthday Challenge

Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog

One more day until the new year starts...have any big plans?? We don't, we usually stay home and finish up cleaning the house to start the new year off fresh and clean.  This will be my second to last post for the year, tomorrow I will doing a year in review, thanks to Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea for giving me the idea last year. Today's card is for Serendipity's Winter Birthday challenge....I just love their sled stamp, it reminds me of the scene from It's a Wonderful Life, but they used shovels instead, I know the connection is a bit of a stretch but it's the truth.  I wanted the card to be on the feminine side and decided to pair pink with the ivory.  I picked up the beautiful pink ribbon from Britex when we went to San Francisco for Christmas Eve, they have the best satin ribbon you can find! Be sure to head over to the Serendipity challenge blog and see the wonderful creations that the design team created. You still have plenty of time to post your card and have the chance to win the Serendipity Winner's badge or $20.00 towards your next Serendipity purchase.  I was lucky enough to win the $20.00 last month, so be sure to get your card made and posted! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my card.

  1. Wow Kim, the sled looks so good with the pink as an accent color. You were so smart to come up with that one and I know exactly what you mean about the sled and the snow shovels from one of my favorite movies of all time. I am so glad you were able to make a card for the Serendipity challenge!

  2. Oh I love that sled image Kim. Your design with the two stitched rectangles is perfect and the way the sled is over the stitched border looks fantastic!

    Happy New year my friend! xoxo
