Christmas Greetings



Hello everyone...hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!!!
I made a card for the Featured Stamper Challenge today on Splitcoast. The featured stamper is none other than Riley (DancerRiley) and oh my, what a fabulous gallery!!!! After cruzing Riley's gallery for quite a while, I went back to page one and her beautiful Holiday Greetings card. I kept the same Christmas theme, the three ornaments, and the same colors. I changed the stamps, layout, and instead of bows, I added snowflakes.
This is also for the Basic Grey Challenge to use red, blue, and green on a card. The sketch I used is from the Sweet Stop Sketch #26 challenge blog. The twist for this challenge is to use something recycled. I pulled the snowflakes off another card so they are used and slightly abused!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses dp
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: Felt Snowflakes, Candy Dots, Ribbon, Nestabilities, Dimensionals
Thanks so much for visiting today...now I'm off to make a few more cards before DH gets home!!!
