I needed another Christmas card today…made me so happy that I got to try this!!! I saw a card in Hero Arts Flickr gallery with some of their new stamps and I don’t have them “yet” so I had to improvise! I used Hero Arts H2887 Real Pine and the ornament is from a set LL260 Good Cheer Messages. I did sneak in that Stampin Up Baroque stamp and I think the music background is Penny Black…it was fun to emboss and play to create this anyway! : ) The paper lace/ruban at the bottom is from Basic Grey Capella. I edged all the papers with vintage photo and/or walnut stain Distress inks, HERE and the ink blending tool, HERE…can’t stamp without them! lol
I hit the ribbon with the heat tool to make it “shrink and crinkle” up. Stampin Up and Bazzill card-stocks… not sure where those pearl things came from but I am so glad they were in my drawer! lol
Linking up to a some Challenge blogs…

Hope you’re having fun creating…After Christmas I’ll be catching up with a lot of blog commenting that’s for sure! I know I’ve missed a lot this week while I’ve been in the “getting cards mailed ” mode.
This card makes me want to burst out singing “Joy to the world”! So thankful for Christmas…the birth of God’s son…hope you feel the JOY!
