Joy

Hi!

Brace yourselves because I am back with another Christmas Card! That is Two in one week, so that makes three done! Yipee!

Still having dreadful weather, so dreadful pictures sorry!
I started this card with a piece of beautiful patterned paper that was from the LUSH collection and added it to my rustic cream cardstock. It has a velour texture. YUMMY!  I took a length of satin ribbon and wrapped the card vertically down the center embellishing with two beautiful red roses at the top and bottom of the card front.

I created the ornament by making my chipboard using a Trader Joe's Cracker Box.
After I painted it.
I love to use my paper sander to distress the edges for an antique look.
After it dried I used Cherry Cobbler Ink to stamp an ornament from Waltzingmouse Vintage Ornaments to the painted chipboard and as the ink soaked into the paint it gave it a more faded antique look. A prima glittered rose was added to the center along with three gold leaves that were cut from some May Arts Ribbon. A Tim Holtz Memory Pin was added to hold my stamped sentiment which is also from the Waltzingmouse Vintage Ornaments collection. 
I found my inspiration from the Waltingmouse Sketch Challenge.
