Nordic Noel

Yes -  I am excited to be already adding to my Christmas Stash box for 2017!  What a relief to have them all done to mail in the beginning of December this past year.   
For inspiration I went to one of my fav challenges - Merry Monday Christmas
I used both the word Noel and a Scandinavian (Nordic) theme.
I got out Claire Brennan's beautiful Nordic Winter stamp set which is now being sold at Gina K Designs (check out all of the Claire's sets that are now sold at Gina K).  The Noel is from the Waltzingmouse set Compliments of the Season Two (no longer available).  
It was such a clean and simple design that I made 6 of them while I had the supplies out!
I added a simple red rhinestone to the center of one flower on each card.
and for those who are interested in what is on the inside -  I used the same Nordic stamp set.
I'm also linking my card to another Christmas challenge I love:


Stamps:  Nordic Winter - Claire Brennan/Gina K Designs,  Compliments of the Season Two - Waltzingmouse.
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Pure Poppy, Stormy Sea, True Black - PTI
