Goldilocks and the three squares

I am combining a few challenges today. The Winter Wonderland challenge, Real or Faux Stitching, was a slam dunk because I love sewing on paper (which reminds me of an interesting story when I took my 32 year old Kenmore in for repairs and explained what I use it for, but that's a story for another day). I struggled a bit with the Jingle Belles challenge to make a card using inchies. First I tried using an actual one inch square. It was TOO small to put anything on it.Then I tried a two inch square. It was TOO big to fit into the layout I had in mind. Then I tried a one-inch-and-a-halfie and it was just right. I added a rectangle and a large square to add some interest. This is a truly a Heinz 57 of stuff, dies, stamps, papers and a bit of stitching. It was very fun to make.
