I tried Joan Ervin's wonderful lace sponging tutorial today: http://stampingwithapassion.blogspot...llenge-on.html Joan said you could use lace or a punched border. No, I could not find one tiny bit of lace and saw a doily and decided to try it. I placed it in my corner and sponged. I think it makes a nice corner.
My card is for these four challenges:
Technique Lover's Challenge 290 (I think a wk. and a half late)
JustRite:http://justritestampers.typepad.com/ to use red, black, and ivory and to make your own embellishment using die cute, crochet flower, etc.
I am using a die cut and sponged my corner. Challenge #036
Just Us Girls-Color Challenge:http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/ Use green, red, black, and a neutral. My green is the leaves in the poinsettia given to me in a RAK from Pam124, Thanks, Pam. Also the mistletoe. Challenge (challenge#51)

Kookzi's right - this is a very classy card. Love the die-cuts you've used. All in all a perfect Christmas card. And FOUR challenges! Needless to say, I am most impressed! Great card. RYPH! :)

Benz, if it weren't for that GORGEOUS flower treatment, I don't know . . . Just kidding! I happen to be a huge (not in weight) fan of using black on a card as it makes everything pop. You used it beautifully with the Cherry Cobbler and vanilla. Cherry Cobbler is one of my new fave SU colors. I love your JR image too. Great job and look at those challenges. You're leaving me behind in the dust!! TFS!
