Warm Winter Wishes + Border Freebie!

Hello and Happy Thursday! This week I wasn't in the mood to color, so what better time than to use some clipart?! I usually don't work with clipart, but after making this card, I definately will more often! I love how easy it was. And first of all, I must apologize for the sadness of how the photo turned out. My mother borrowed my camera, so I was forced to use an older one (that I despise) and it didn't turn out so well. So when I tried to make another one, the camera batteries were dead. argh!

Anyways, back to the card. I used a sketch from InStyle Stamps blog. I printed the clipart on textured white cardstock. I printed the gifts and the tree star two times, because I wanted to layer them with pop dots (hard to see in photo). The paper is from DCWV. It isn't supposed to be christmas paper, but it reminded me of snow, so I thought it looked nice. Then I just added some sparkle!  


You can find this set here.
