Pennant Parade for Christmas

This past week has been exceptionally busy with extra babysitting for my granddaughters and lots of canning and jam-making. In addition, it was training week for Leadership Council at Community Bible Study. I had scheduled a Christmas card class for yesterday morning and was still short one design. Struggling to come up with a fairly simple but lovely design, I remembered the Pennant Parade stamp set. One pennant combined with the plant pot image makes a perfect Christmas tree with just the right mood to fit the Season of Style designer series paper in the holiday catalog. I could have added some bling with the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the "garland", but I didn't think of it until I began writing this up. However, I was truly satisfied with the end result. I used the coordinating punch for the tree but had to cut out the star by hand. Surprisingly, the Baked Brown Sugar ink gave the star a golden look. By the way, the catalog says this designer paper has Old Olive in it, but I think it looks more like Wild Wasabi, so I chose that color to coordinate with the paper. On a previously posted card, I used the Old Olive.
