Home for Christmas – TSSC95

Mary Jo's Monday's Lunchtime Challenges are always fun.  I finished this card yesterday, but had to wait for the glue and glitter to dry, so it just got photographed today.  This sketch, TSSC95, was really fun and I think this set is perfect for it!

I started with a base of Garden Green cardstock and cut a strip of the striped paper from Merry Moments Designer paper.  I wrapped the Mistletoe Taffeta Ribbon around it and added a hand-cut tag with, A Christmas Wish stamped on it in Basic Black.  I punched a strip of Real Red cardstock with the Scallop Edge Punch for under the designer paper.

Stampin' Up!'s Home for Christmas image was stamped in Basic Black on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored with the AquaPainter and Stampin' Write markers in Garden Green, Old Olive, Real Red, Summer Sun, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray and Chocolate Chip.  The Very Vanilla was layered onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and placed just under the Real Red Scallop Edge.

 Finally, I used a little Crystal Effect on the snow in the bush and along the steps and ground and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for some extra BLING!  Too bad you can't see the sparkle on the card!

On a personal note…if you would keep my hubby in your prayers.  He goes for an epidural on his back early Wednesday morning.  Please pray that this shrinks the membrane that is pushing on the nerve and relieves the pain and that he doesn't have to go in for surgery if it doesn't work.  MANY thanks!
