Merry Christmas card


Christmas is 69 days away and boy do I feel behind already...so to help me get caught up I am trying to make Christmas Cards for all the Splitcoast Challenges...This card was one I made for last weeks Wednesday scetch challenge and yesterdays plaid challenge...I know my plaid looks more like argyle, but I thought it was close enough lol...I used some old Christmas papers that I picked up from Joanns last year and some extra fibers I had laying around my craft room...Also I had some tiny Christmas bulb ornaments that I thought would be fun to use...I love the affect that it added...The stamp I used is one from a couple years ago that I picked up on sale at Michaels...I colored in the image with Copic markers and added some Crystal Stickles to finish it off...I thought I would do something funky and add some scallops to the bottom of the card...I don't like symmetrical cards lol...Lastly I added some faux pearls to the scallops and the edges of the card...I really love how this card turned out and I hope you all like it too...Thanks for stopping by and Have a great Weekend!!!
