My card features five stamps from one of the upcoming releases, All Yule Need. This is such a fun set and no two cards you make with it will look the same. It has everything you need for holiday cardmaking, although you may want the other releases, too! ;) I paper pieced my own tree and decorated it with a glittery star and glossy pink lightbulbs. The natural ribbon and hot pink twine are available at the Paper Smooches store. Why not add some to your next order?


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of All Yule Need!
