Beate's Sketch challenge Season of Joy

This card was for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #26. I really love Beate's sketches. I think this one is one of my favorites.
-Stamps-Season Of Joy, Perfect Endings, Snow Flurries
-Ink-Old Olive, River Rock, Real Red
-Paper-Dashing DSP; Old Olive, River Rock, Real Red and Whisper White cardstock
-Accessories-Pewter Hodgepodge hardware, Real Red grosgrain ribbon
And I'm such a cheapskatewink. Whenever most of a piece of DSP is going to be covered up anyway, I'll cut out as much as I can. It really does make your Designer Series paper go further though. I know the edges are really raggedy. I used my old fiskars paper trimmer for this, which I only use for scoring and stuff like this since i have the tabletop trimmer now.

Thanks for the tip on being a cheapskate, I had never thought to do that - and you've got enough paper left over to do another card. Cool!
