Greetings, friends! I have been trying to go through my UFO (un-finished objects) boxes a little more recently, and put this card together using some leftover bits and pieces. I've been hoarding the scraps of this patterned paper for ages, and have been stubbornly trying to use up every last bit. I still can't quite finish it up! A package of patterned paper can last for ages, don't you think? I'm not sure I've ever entirely finished one up.
My inspiration came from two challenges. First, the awesome sketch at Viva La Verve, which is so perfect for using up little scraps. My sentiment and the subtle snowflake behind it are from a Verve set. Second, Merry Monday is having a Christmas in Summer link-up where you can use any of their previous challenges, and I chose #224, Masculine Christmas Card. I think the woodgrain and earthly colors have a masculine feel.
