August 20, 2015 Merry Christmas


Every year I "challenge" myself to make a Christmas card using nontraditional stamps.  I was using this set from AMuse for a swap I was in and I immediately thought Christmas.  Finished making my swap cards and die cut out a few extra images, stamped them, and saw that they needed a bit of sparkle so out with the "glitter".  Some bling for eyes some bakers twine for bows stamped a Merry Christmas and I think it turned out pretty cutesy.  Challenges:
     LiveLoveCards - Holiday card
     613 Avenue - anything goes
     Penny's Paper - anything goes
