here's what we did:
lauren says, "being a big fan of festive greens myself, i've covered all the bases: my card has holly--in the form of vintage fussy-cut illustrations, stickers, and printed cardstock frames; mulberry paper ivy leaves; poinsettias of the home-made AND store-bought variety; plus a mistletoe-bedecked tag! something else of which i'm quite enamoured are the pixie sketches miss kirsty draws for us each month...and i think this one is particularly FAB!"
and now it's time to see what you will do: grab your stamps, your patterned paper, your embellies...or heck... even some silk or paper florals!... but let's see your best holiday foliage cards! the keyword for uploading at SCS or flickr is JB13; inlinkz closes at 6pm (EST) on wednesday, march 30th.
(please link the specific post in which your card is featured and not your whole blog! thanks!)

Speaking of HAPPY...here are some amazing cards which made us feel particularly pleased and proud!
What an awesome combination of elements ... (we love that crown and the fun lacy trim!) ... not to mention the fabulously non-traditional color scheme!
Speaking of gorgeous work... your fellow ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ are no slouches in that department, and we're keen to invite you to scroll down to the thumbnails for PROOF of that! (Then come back at midnight, when we'll have a brand NEW prompt!)

here are a few especially drool-worthy cards that leslie thought ROCKED the kraft, white, and blue of the COOL YULE color scheme particularly well:
leslie says, "The paper for this card is perfection. Then she added the sentiment layer, the bow, the flower, the tape. Everything just works so well together. Stunning!"

so were we right? are you ready to ♥ROCK♥ this swinging color palette?! while you're thinking it over, why not take a look at what we've done:
Leslie says, "I am a non-traditionalist, sometimes referred to as a rebel. I like to break the rules, and one of my favorite things to do is make cards for a holiday in non-traditional colors. One of the things about Christmas colors is that I find any red & green combination makes me think "Christmas", even if it's July! So when I saw this photo of a room makeover on The Lettered Cottage, I just knew these were my colors. And now they are yours! Have fun!"

Rose was singing along to Home for the Holidays when memories of home, as well as a holiday card idea, popped into her mind, and luckily for us, she wrote in* to suggest it! Here are some of those holiday song lyrics to inspire you:
