I made a quick card today in order to make it into the Freshly Made and Fantabulous Cricut challenges on time.   The Freshly Made sketch is below.

The Fantabulous Cricut challenge was a holiday card.  That left me wide open.  The minute I saw this tree pattern from an old Christmas stack I knew I could make a rather vintage looking card.  And what better to go with trees than gifts.

The packages are cut from the CM 'Tis the Season cartridge, using a couple of papers from MME's Lost and Found, and popped up with foam.  The stripe is from the same stack as the trees.  I inked it all with Antique Linen Distress Ink to keep with the paper color.

Now I have to get back to the craft room to make more cards for several other challenges.  Someday I'll decide which of these cards will be the ones I want to make in multiples for sending to friends and familly.
