Decorate Your Holidays...

The weekend is almost officially over....it's 11:30pm and Monday is almost here. :(
Let's hope this week brings something exciting!!

My card tonight is for three challenges...
first up The Paper Players, where I used the sketch for this card;


next....Moxie Fab World, adding texture

and last....Hero Arts Blog Challenge, from which all these stamps are from and the theme is 'creating a holiday card using non-holiday stamps'.

And here is my card...

The kraft and white cardstock are from Recollections. Hero Arts stamps and black ink. Colorbox  ink in lavender. Distress inks in bundled sage and scattered straw. Leaf punch is Mc Gill and branch punch is ek success. Pearls and jute ribbon are from Michaels.

Thanks for peeking!
Hope you have a great week!

Michelle

Gorgeous take on the sketch. Love the jute ribbon, it is such a wonderfully textural element and adds so much to the card. The pearls and the leaves add a hint of the feminine - just gorgeous. So glad you shared it with the Paper Players this week
