Crafty Secrets Napkin Holders

I made these napkin holders with the free download that Sandy provided to her customers. I love it so much: Christmas sheet music on the perfect shade of vintage cream. I added snowflakes and birds cut with my nestabilities. I cut the edges of the sheeet music with pinking shears and inked them with Antique Linen distress ink. This is my sister Kingslee's. Isn't that a fun name?

Inspired By Challenge

This card is inspired by Charlene Austin's card that can be seen on page 38 of the Papercrafts November/December 2009 issue. I love the simplicity of her card. The sentiment on my card is Papertrey Ink's Big and Bold sentiment set. The large font is so fun.

Hero Arts Tag

I like how this turned out. Love little birds!
