Keep Christmas In Your Heart - WMSC 117

Hello There!

**Second post of the day Ten Minute Craft Dash is Below or Click here**

Have you ever started a card and it took you a week to complete? Well you are looking at one below! :-) I had so many projects going in the works. I finally got this one done, and I didn't want to miss the linky deadline! Because that would be sad. I rather liked the end result. I can't remember when it ends, but I think soon. Too bad mother nature is dark and raining on my parade! Just makes for dark photos. Oh well! 

So here is my week long make! :-)
I started with Brown Cover Weight Cardstock from the Kraft Outlet I covered it with some antique white craft paint adding some red and cream stripe paper from my scrap pile. I die-cut a piece of c-flute corrugated cardstock and gave it some paint for a primitive look.  I created a tag from a die-cut using Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock stamping with snowflakes from WMS Seasons of Love in Riding Hood Red.  
Using Brown Cover Weight Cardstock  a heart was die-cut and a tiny snowflake was randomly stamped in Kraft ink with a sentiment from WMS Seasons of Love in Riding Hood Red.  The tag was then looped with red grosgrain ribbon and dressed up with a shabby seam binding bow embellished with a heart button and stick pins.  Finishing touches include two silver glass glitter stars and a poinsettia flower. 

Inspiration for this card was provided at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Ha, totally! And regularly they'll take days at a time...staring blankly and wondering what I'd intended to do, or just not getting back to the desk. Yup. Been there :)
Totally love the final project - and the word totally today, of course - and the sweet heart button & pins are such great embellies! Love the whole thing :)
