Papertake Weekly - Red and Green must NOT be seen!

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying all the holiday festivities and that you're not stressed out with all the preparations! I'm actually doing pretty well this year. I've decided that I am not going to stress over anything. I'll get done what I can get done, and what will be, will be.  And I'm feeling so much better than  normally do at this time! I'm loving it!  My middle daughter and grandson get here in one week, and I am way beyond ready! We're all soooo excited and can't wait to make Christmas cookies, sing Christmas Carols, watch all the traditional Christmas movies, and everything else! 

With it being Tuesday, it's time for another challenge from Papertake Weekly! This week, Dawny's challenge is to make a holiday card or project, but red and green is not to be seen, and we're sponsored by the fabulous Katharina at Whiff of Joy!  For my card, I used one of the most gorgeous images of Madonna and Child from Peggy Loves Vintage!! It's from one of her newest sets of Christmas cutouts, and it's just so easy to use!! I just printed it out, mounted it on cardstock, and finished up the rest of the card. Sooooo easy!!!

This image evokes the true reason for the season, and I adore it! Please be sure and visit Peggy Loves Vintage if you still have Christmas cards to make! Her images will make quick and easy work of it!  Be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the gorgeous projects from the design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Beautiful card Sharon. Love that image & what a great way to make quick & easy cards ... You still make it look like a masterpiece.
is your round sentiment a digi or a regular stamp? I have the digi ones but can't make mine come out to fit & look as great as yours is. Did you use Nestabilities to cut your circle out ?
Hugs, Janie

This is a very beautiful card Sharon. I know you have used thes vintage images before. This is very serene - gives one pause. Merry Christmas Sharon


Beautiful card and the colors are awesome.
I went to Peggy's and wonder if you can steer me to the one that has this image. I'm using some of her vintage images but totally love this one. I searched for it but it came out zero.
Thanks for sharing you beautiful card.
