I used Making Memories~ Noel paper collection for my projects today. I stamped the image on Kraft cardstock and colored it with prismacolor pencils and OMS. 

I used some oval rhinestones from Pizzaz Aplenty.

Very simple ones with minimum embellishments... just some baker's twine and a brad.

The set comes with wonderful sentiments...

I stamped the gorgeous Santa image on cork sheet and colored the white parts with white gel pen...really like how it turned out!!
