This collection of holiday plates struck a chord with me and I knew that all of you would be inspired too! The black background of the plates reminds me a bit of a chalkboard look. The sprigs of greenery surrounding the phrases seems reminiscent of Spruce & Sprigs or even the Cover Plate: Winter Floral die. Pops of red are always welcome to add warmth to chilly winter days. If you are still in the holiday spirit the day after Christmas, feel free to use the inspiration literally and create a holiday project. Or use the ideas for an every day type theme. We look forward to seeing your creations!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Rema D. created this chalkboard inspired card. I love the contrast of the red diagonal stripes framing the black, such a nice touch!
Terri W. used paper from the Lovely Laurels to make this beautiful card. The embossed stitching detail paired with the floral sequins adds just the right amount of pop.
Vikki H. made this fabulous holiday card in vibrant reds and greens. The vellum mat was the perfect solution for balance since the translucency of the vellum allows a little peek at the fabulous background paper.
Congratulations to all of the winners! Please send contact customer service and let them know your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone who played along, enjoy the rest of your holiday!
