The Real Christmas Colors

Happy Hellos --Again:

I know--two post in one day...right. Well, I actually made this card earlier in the month and I suppose I just put it up (right in front of me) and forgot about it. This card was originally made to be a Christmas card; however, as I continued to play with it, the card appeared to be the type of greeting I would send to someone celebrating a December birthday.  It seem so appropriate for the holidays.

At the time I was putting this together, I could not find any Christmas sentiment stamps that would fit the size of my clear Tim Holtz tags. Go figure. So, I grabbed the next best thing. I grabbed one of my sentiment from Verve Stamps--which I absolutely love.

The stripped ribbon came from AC Moores and the particially transparent ribbon was a scrap that was given to me from my LSS a few months ago. Of course I never turned down anything purple. I added a couple threads of burlap and I was done. As for the DP, let me just say, this BoBunny paper was my favorite. I purchased enough to last for quite some time.

With that said, don't be suprise if you see this DP around the holidays:)
