Time for the November Fun Friday Challenge!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday!  Today I have a card to share with you that I created based on this month's sketch over at the Your Next Stamp Challenge blog.  Each and every month we have a sketch and or inspiration photo to inspire you and if you play along you could win some great prizes (see rules at bottom of my post).

For my card today I used one of the new Holiday Kid's stamps and a whole bunch of papers from the scrap pile on my desk.  I embossed my background with a holly themed embossing folder and then added lots of red and green papers to match the sketch.  I used a foam snowflake to embellish my card and I added one of the great YNS Gumdrop embellishments in the center as an accent.  I LOVE these things....the look of pearls but no bulk for you cards --- and they come in tons of awesome colours!!

So pop on over the YNS Challenge blog to check out this month's photo and sketch and I hope you'll play along with us!!  There are also lots of great designer samples each and every Friday to inspire you.  Thanks for stopping by!
