Happy Birthday Papertake Weekly!

Good morning all!  Today the Papertake Weekly challenge is celebrating it's birthday with a special birthday blog hop.  So if you just arrived here from the wonderfully talented Dawny P's blog then you are in the right place, if not you may want to hop on over to the Papertake Weekly challenge blog and start the hop at the very beginning.  Make sure you leave each designer some love because there are prizes along the way.

My card is super simple again today.  I just couldn't bring myself to cover up the beautiful BoBunny Father Christmas designer paper with a bunch of frou frou, just a simple Christmas verse on Our Daily Bread Designs new Elegant Oval frames, some fun colored seam binding and some fancy SU brads.
Now pop on over to visit the lovely and talented Katina's blog and see what she has to share with you!

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Elegant Oval Frames, Christmas Door
SU always artichoke, crumb cake
Versafine black and sepia, Ranger antique linen
SU brads and seam binding
Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and Grand Caliber
sponge, clear embossing powder
