Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  Today's card is for a fun challenge going on over at StampNation that my fellow brand ambassador, Karen has put together for the members to play along with to get a start on Holiday card making.  The theme of the challenges are Children's games-Holiday Edition.  Last week she had a fun game of Tic Tac Toe, this week it's Jump Rope.  She challenges everyone to Feature a Natural Element on their Holiday card/project.

I chose Pinecones.  This one from The Greetery is my absolute favorite!  I love how easy it is to put together and how realistic they look.  AND that shiplap background is another favorite of mine, how amazing is that?!!  That's also a die from The Greetery.

I die cut the pinecone pieces and the bow from colored card stock.  You could also cut them from white card stock and color them with ink or markers.  Both ways look amazing.  The sentiment is an older one from Papertrey ink.

Catherine has a new release coming next week, she revealed the theme today on Facebook live with some sneak peeks.  It's another great collection of goodies.  There are 3 different bundles being released.  I can't wait to share what I have created with some of the new goodies.  This collection hits the shop on Wed. Oct. 28th at 9am.  StampNation members get to order early!
