Black and White Christmas

     First day of November, a new month and the year is flying by!  Less than two months now until Christmas and hardly enough time to breathe before Thanksgiving.  Wow, where does the time go?  For today, I want to share with you a card I made using one of the brand new November release sets from Doodle Pantry.  As soon as I saw this "White Owl" set, I knew I wanted to try a Christmas card in black and white.  Doesn't that combo just make the yellow eyes pop?


     The owl is printed and fussy cut.  Papers are from DCWV and the snowflakes were done with dies from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is also from the Doodle Pantry set.

     Challenges:

     All the new releases are on sale for 20% off !!  What a bargain.  Check out the New Releases here.  Don't forget that our Challenge #52 starts at noon Eastern time today and runs through the 24th.  You can use any digital image to enter.  It doesn't have to be a Doodle Pantry image but if it is, you'll get a pre-selected set for free just for using it.  There's also a free set that will be given for any purchase you make.  You can see photos of all three sets below.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Elegant design and that owl looks so real I am expecting it to launch from the card front.
