When All Else Fails...

You have heard it said, "When all else fails, read the instructions."  Well, I read the instructions but obviously not carefully.  I wanted to try the challenge #1 at the OWH VCMP.  So I cut out my one inch squares, put the card together, only to realize that all the cards posted were Christmas. Yes, I missed that part of the challenge.  So here is the first card that I made:
Sentiment is by MFT.  Card base is Real Red by Stampin up.  Embossing folder is Cuttlebug.

An now for the Christmas card I am entering into the OWH challenge!  I decided to use some designer paper that was a sheet of old world Christmas stamps.  I cut out each stamp. Had to line them up a little differently but I do like how it turned out :

Sentiment for this card is by Verve.  Card base is Artichoke by Stampin Up and embossing folder is Cuttlebug.

Divas That Cut - celebrate
Verve -tic, tac, toe inspiration (grid)
Our Daily Bread - one layer
