Joyeux Noel

I have had this Christmas card done for some time now (uh, months), and I think it's time to share it.


I used lots of white, but added texture from embossing and a punched border to keep it interesting. The sentiment is Verve, topped with a trimmed K & Co. holly die cut.


I stamped a damask pattern with Market Street Stamps' Vintage Wallpaper design and finished it off with some sheer white ribbon and a found earring. How fun (and FREE) is that?!


With the end of October approaching, I suppose I'd better make more Christmas cards soon. Holidays will be here before we know it!

Absolutely gorgeous! All that texture is just sumptuous - and how fun is the found earring? (Hmmm, maybe I should head to the thrift shop & see what I can find....)
