Joyeux Noel

Hi! 

I just wanted to share another quick post today! It's so hard to photograph cards sometimes. I don't think the pictures do the ribbon /embellishments justice. It's 100% a bulky card! :-) I seriously can't help it. 

So here it is! :-)))
I started by piecing together my pattern papers. The bottom layer is a glittery embossed red patterned paper. Also much prettier in person. I then added part of a heart doily to the left side of the card front.  Next I wrapped a length of gingham ribbon vertically around the card front and tied in a bow. I embellished with another red seam binding bow, twine, a button, and some winter berries in my stash. 
I stamped Abigail onto a stitched journaling card. I gave her an outfit from So Proud of You.  On her sweater I gave her a pin using Holly from Have a Holly Jolly Holiday.  A row of buttons laced with twine is the final embellishing touch. Finally, I added a sentiment from Season Of Love. All Stamps are from Paper Sweeties.

I will share this at: Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes,  D.L. Art - Thankful Thursday, Scrapping Everyday Miracles - Christmas,  The Shabby Tea Room - Noel, Buttons and Polka Dots

I am sad this is their final challenge, but sharing at Papercraft Star: Christmas.

Well that wraps it up for me today!  Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
Blessings!
~Tammy~
