KSS 10 Minute Challenge #39

This week's 10 Minute Challenge has 3 ingredients: a 4.24 x 5.5 card, a 1.25 x 5.5 strip of colored cardstock, and the Kitchen Sink images of your choice! I'm feeling the holiday spirit, so two of my samples are Christmas!

Do what you like with the narrow strip. Punch it, emboss it, or just leave it plain.

If you upload your card to the Kitchen Sink Gallery, include keyword 10MC39.
