Holly Jolly

Hey all. It's Sunday morning and I have a card to share for a couple challenges. It's the first Christmas card I've made this year. I am way behind in that! This was made using sketch #172 from Freshly Made Sketches and Merry Monday #144.

 Here's the inside:

I stamped and heat embossed the snowman and inked around the edges with Antique Linen DI. It's popped up on foam squares over the embossed panel and strip of DP with the twine tied around it. I spritzed the wooden snowflake with Sapphire Glimmer Mist. A simple sentiment finishes the inside.

I'm off to enter this, as one of these challenges is about to expire. Procrastination - it's my Super Power! LOL! 


Thanks for stopping by!
