Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Seeing Spots

I have to interrupt this blogpost to ask you if you saw my cousin Caitlin Koch's performance last night on the X-Factor?  She performed at Simon Cowell's home in FRANCE!!  She was AMAZING and I'm hoping she makes it to the next round.  We'll find out on Sunday night!  I hope you are watching too!

Happy Friday everyone!  This week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long we are being sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies...Paper Makeup Stamps!  I might be a little biased because I'm on their design team, but I've been on it almost since the beginning, and I've seen them grow into a wonderful company with many versatile stamps!  And they are offering a $15 shopping spree to their store for our winner this week at CSAYL!

Our challenge this week is called Seeing must use polka dots on your holiday creation.  Here is my card for this challenge.

I love this Snow Happy set from PMS!  It's been used quite a bit by myself the PMS design team!  It's got a homespun feel to it, so I went that route with my card.  I started with this great sketch from Card Patterns.  It gave me the opportunity to use four different patterns (two of them polka dots).  I stamped the snowman in Memento Tuxedo black, colored it with copics, and cut it out.  It's mounted on a base made from Vintage Cream cardstock and Bravo Burgundy cardstock, which was run through the Swiss dots folder.  I added some vintage seam binding (from Debbie Marcinkiewicz's Etsy store) and a tag made using the Little Moments PMS stamp set.  The wooden heart button is from Prima and the other from PTI. 

Are you ready to see more inspiration from the CSAYL team?  Stop by the CSAYL blog and enter your creation there too.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Lisa!! Love these colors and papers. I agree, very homespun feel. Warm and cozy. On another note, I saw Kaitlin serenade Simon the other night on X factor. Looks like he was completely impressed. I was too!!
