Time's a wasting but my idea kept changing with the color palettes that weren't what I wanted. But so glad I kept at it as this is perfect now for the CCC3 14th challenge hosted by Linda Ledbetter. This challenge is sponsored by Linda Coughlin aka The Funkie Junkie. There will be a winner of a $25 gift certificate to the FJ on-line store as well as a Curiosity Crew winner.
The Festive stencil was used on the left hand side (both corners) then flipped over and used on the right hand side corners. The images are subtle but just what I wanted.
