Magic of Christmas

Hi Stampers -

So Sorry for my late post for this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge! I wasn't feeling very good yesterday after I got back from visiting my sister before she had to leave for Florida so I didn't get my pictures taken. I had a massive headache that would not go away for anything! I ended up getting the post pre-scheduled for the challenge and then laying around on the couch doing nothing - trying to get my headache to go away :(

The challenge this week is a 1, 2, 3, challenge! We want to see 1 - Image, 2 Designer Papers, and 3 Embellishments! Here is my LATE project...


I am bound and determined to get some Christmas Cards made this year that I can send - LOL! I am up to THREE!! YAY! That is a record I think!! I used the GORGEOUS Candy Cane stamp from Saturated Canary! This is one of my favorite favorite stamps! I decided to color her in soft teal blues and warm greys. I like how she turned out. I decided to make one of my panels look like a pretty vintage, wrapped Christmas Present. My Sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Seasonal Sentiments stamp set. This is actually one sentiment but I cut it apart to make it fit my card better.

Here is a look at the inside of the card - which I kept pretty simple.




And here is a close up of the lovely Candy Cane...


I added some iridescent ice to her wings too for just a touch of bling :)


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you play along with us this week!!
