Yes, Thanksgiving is over and it really is time to think about Christmas! I was inspired to create a Christmas card after finding the Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central themed challenge for this week, and also the fabulous photo collage inspiration challenge going on over at Jay Gee's Nook. There were a lot of images to choose from, and I settled on a combination of these two:
I created a button wreath using some buttons hidden away in my stash, as well as some pretty ribbon to emulate the darling wreath ornament. The musical paper on the gift bag got me dry embossing with an impression plate from Taylored Expressions. I wanted to keep things Clean and Simple, so I just added a nice sentiment on a banner, adding just a wee bit of shading with a Copic marker.
I hope that you are getting a head start on your holiday cards, too! I just love this time of year.
