Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge - Unconventional Everyday

Hello, friends! :) The four day weekend my daughter and I have been enjoying has come to an end, and she's returning to school today...

Today's card was created for this week's Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge. This week, we're creating everyday cards using unconventional paper... I had a stack of Cosmo Cricket Holly by Golly paper that I hadn't opened yet, and when I saw this sheet of candy canes and mints, I knew it it was *perfect* for the challenge! :) LOL, okay, okay, so my card is a little corny, but still, it's cute. :)

Want to play along with us? Simply upload your card to your SCS gallery using the keyword JBEO90 or post a comment on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog linking to your blog. We' would love to see what you come up with! :)
