Christmas love........





               Hello back today as promised with a card for TRC .  I decided to challenge myself to create a Christmas card in a new to me color scheme...I came up with soft greens and browns.   I don't think I have ever used this combo...kinda like it! The lighting today is horrible though so please bare with me.   I used pattern papers and leaned on my stamps to create interest at the bottom.  I used the berry branch from the Christmas tidings set and also took the christmas word from the set and stamped as a border right above.  I created a ornament of sorts cutting a circle and stamping the holly berries from the set inside around the edges and than glittering the image.  Added a layer on top with a heart and the word LOVE.   I added a stamped ribbon/bow to the top of my ornament using the swirled ball with hanging ribbon stamp for a little more interest.  I fussy cut the bow twice and layered them together.  I like the soft effect the card has...hope you enjoy too!  Want to take the time to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving...hope you are able to enjoy time with your family and friends.  Hugs, cherry
