The Mixed Media Card Challenge~ 5 Christmas


Hi Friends! It's that time of the month again for The Mixed Media Card Challenge!! This month the DT is using an awesome stamp set from Stamplorations called Holiday Sketches and Vignette : Christmas Block !!  I love the Vignette stamp with all the different letters and the bells are so pretty!



Challenge : Christmas with an optional of using bells



For my card I embossed the background with white and blended with distress inks . The vignette stamp was embossed with gold. There's a layer behind the vignette stamp that I stenciled with embossing paste and then inked. The bells were colored with distress markers , I also used for gold leaf and then a coat of Wink of Stella.



Prizes:
1 winner - $15 gift certificate (randomly drawn from entries with optional element)
1 winner - choice of stamp set from select categories (randomly drawn from all entries)

I'm also entering this card into the Curtain Call Challenge Boho Bright!

 


 Have a great Weekend! Hugs, Char
