Seasons Greetings ...

I haven't played along with many challenges lately and I really wanted to get back into the swing of things.  What better way than to create something for the new DeNami Theme Challenge #8, which is the first challenge I participated in 1-yr ago.  The current theme for the challenge is "Christmas".

I made a window card using DeNami's Leafy Vine Wreath, Classic Seasons Greetings, Candle Trio, and Mini Grass stamps. Cardstock is from DeNami, A Muse Studio, and Neenah. Copic Markers, Tim Holtz new Holiday Distress Inks, and Stickles were used throughout the design.
I'm also submitting my card to the current Wee Memories Challenge #78 ~ Free For All.

Don't forget to come back this weekend for the Lawnscaping "All About Red" Blog Hop and DeNami "Gift Wrapping" Blog Hop!

Until next time ...

This card is fantastic, Ruza! I love the window cut out with the glittery candles peeking through!

Oh wow, has it been a year since your first challenge with us already?? I remember exactly which card you did- it still may be one of my favorite Ruza cards. :)

Thank you so much for playing along in our challenge- we always enjoy seeing your DeNami cards!
