a Christmas card. . . .

to hopefully get me started in the right direction! 


There are a mix of products used on this card from various companies.  I recently acquired the Wplus9 Hand Lettered Holiday dies and this beautiful background stamp from Stamplorations.  I have a couple of sheets of some silver paper that is kinda' crinkled looking and decided to cut a Mama Elephant femme frame from it.  The stamped background was die cut from the stitched die that also comes in the frame set, but it is hard to see the stitching amidst the stamped design.  The snowflake die is from Impression Obsession.  A few blue sequins were added.

Sending this to Addicted to Stamps for their anything goes challenge and to Stamplorations who has an ongoing anything goes challenge.



And, since the challenge at Casology is festive I will submit this card there, too.



Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
