This card turned out totally different to the one I had sketched out! I had in mind a Thanksgiving card, but ended up with Christmas! Not a bad choice mind. I'm still catching up with the WMS Christmas Card Challenges and in March Lynn wanted us to use blue and brown and, I have to admit, that I struggled. Then I saw this week's sketch and it all fell into place. I covered a card with this musical script paper, added some festive vellum and a folksy border. I topped it all with this fabulous large bauble which was stamped with Versamark heat embossed with clear and then inked with Bashful Blue. Sadly the photo just doesn't capture the blue very well. I made a smaller bauble by stamping Santa's head, triple embossing it and then cutting with a die. Here's a close up of the baubles - I think you can see the colour better.
As usual, I'm running right up to the submission deadline - but I made it. Off to do some more house stuff - then I can play!! See you tomorrow.
