Nutcracker Ballet?

 Well it's not really a ballet but Clara from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, and she is holding a Nutcracker soldier. I thought it represented the Nutcracker Ballet. And now time to reveal the December Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge.

Here is my card for the challenge.

As I said earlier I used a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp (long retire
d)  her name is Clara and she is holding a nutcracker (toy)  The frame was cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched rectangles and the Merry Christmas is an Impression Obsession die. Now it was certainly a comedy of errors trying to get a sentiment for the front, first I die cut Happy Holidays from a patterned paper, wrong colour and too large, so then I cut Merry Christmas is Aqua, was the same colour and you couldn't see it so then for the 3rd try cut it in white. believe it or not it took 4 hours to just put the card together (colouring was already done)  Oh well Snippits for Di's Snippit Challenge.

For the inside I used the center cut from the frame that is on the front, The sentiment is from Stampendous and inked with Simon Says Stamp "high dive" ink pad. 

I'm entering this in:

Merry Little Christmas Challenge ~~ #41 Anything Goes December
