A Christmas Card!!

I am so excited to finally be making Christmas cards. I love Christmas! I just got this new stamp set from Inkadinkado and have been dying to play with it. Since I wasn't sure where to start, I thought I would make a card for the Blogger Group Challenge hosted by Sara. The challenge was to use polka dots and ribbon.

I just love this holiday vintage paper by Papertrey. I thought it was perfect for this stamp.

I added Glitz Stickles to the bird. I just found this at my LSS yesterday. I never knew about the Glitz line before then. They are very sparkly. I also traced the letters with a clear Stardust Glitter pen.

Stuff: Stamps-Ornate Christmas (Inkadinkado); Paper-Papertrey White, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Vintage Holiday Prints; Ink- Papertrey Pure Poppy, Versamagic Spanish Olive; Other-Ruby Slippers Glitz Stickles, rhinestones (Me & My Big ideas), clear Stardust glitter pen, Ripe Avocado grosgrain ribbon, curvy rectangles nestibilities

Have a blessed day!
