This week’s challenge actually gave me a chance to use a set that I fell in love with right away but have hardly used!

I just love the idea of a cozy Christmas by the fire so Festive Fireplace was on my radar as soon as the Holiday Catalog came out.


For this card, classic colors worked best.  Cherry Cobbler for the fire place and Garden Green on the mantle create a classic Christmas scene.

Festive Fireplace by

With a focal point as bold as this fireplace, a greeting that could stand out was needed.  In comes the Expressions Natural Elements.  The wood tone was a perfect compliment to the crackling fire.  So many ways to use this set, I look forward to exploring them all!  You can check out the supply list below for more information on how this card was created.
