Yesterday was my birthday, and DH gave me a Vagabond!!  

Now, for the first time, some of the intricate dies in my collection can be easily cut out .  Don’t get me wrong, my little Cuttlebug has been a great friend.  But, oh my, it was with such ease that the sweet doily on today’s card came to be!

The Baker’s Twine was originally red and white… a bright white.  It didn’t look great with the vanilla colored paper being used.  So the twine was colored with  a Copic: marker to tone it down just a bit.


And a square punch was used to cut the end of the sentiment strip.

I thought I was playing along in 4 challenges today.  One of them was a color challenge, and when I finished the card I remembered another rule.  Besides using vanilla, kraft, chocolate and red, it needed to be a Christmas card, too.  Oops!  I’m such a rookie at this multiple challenge game!  LOL  Hopefully today’s card can play along in the following 3 challenges:
