Brown Paper Packages...

Tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things!

That song was going though my head during the entire process of making this card.

Lately, I generally lean toward the Clean and Simple look, but today I decided to give the more embellished look (that I used to use often) a try.

The image is from A Day for Daisies, Christmas Shopping:

The image is named "Christmas Shopping" but, as you see, it can lend itself to other uses.

The image is colored with Copic markers.
The design was inspired by the folks a "the challenge":

There are more beautiful project featuring the January Showcase images on the blogs of my teammates:


We are in the second week of the challenge on the A Day for Daisies blog!  Add stitching! We cannot wait to see what you come up with! 

I hope your Friday finds you warm and cozy and perhaps ...a little time for crafting!

That ADFD image really is inspiring. One could build an entire story around this. Really sweetly designed card, and your interpretation of The Challenge's photo is spot on. Gorgeous layers and such a pretty ribbon too. Wonderful card. Bev
