Merry Christmas Clementine!

Happy Tuesday!
It's time to start our last challenge of 2012 at Tuesday Throwdown!  Seriously...where did the year go?  I feel like it just started and already it's done.

Anyhow...this week we are challenging you to use wrapping paper on your projects!  How fun is that!?  Sometimes the patterns on wrapping paper are so darn cute!  Perfect for cards, or a recycled project, or backgrounds to your smash books...the creativity is endless with that stuff!

At first I wasn't even sure I owned any wrapping paper though...our move last year resulted in lots of stuff being given away and I couldn't remember if the wrapping paper was included in that.  But as I dug through our closet to find the bag that normally holds all of it (along with our poster tubes), I managed to find a few very large costco sized rolls!  Yay!  So here is what I came up with:
I love the deep blue with the gold snowflakes on this paper.  But unfortunately I didn't have any gold paper to go with it!  So I used a kraftish colored paper that seemed to match pretty well.  I used the wrapping paper as my background and also for the flag panel.  I added some gold paint dots around the flag to help pull it away from the background a bit more, but it's kind of hard to see.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy and they have graciously offered images for the design team to use.  I have chosen Clementine Christmas!  Colored with my colored pencils and mounted on a scallop circle with an embossed center.

I added a small piece of ribbon to the flag and then glittered up a plastic snowflake to add to the top of my Merry Christmas sentiment flag.

I hope you will join us at Tuesday Throwdown this week!  Be sure to check out all the other design teams creations as they are absolutely fabulous!!  And remember you must use some sort of stamp, either digital or rubber, on your creation and you can enter up to 3 times!
