Christmas Card Challenge #36 -- Embellish It

Sunday, August 3, 2014

It's time for a new challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges and this week, the optional challenge is to use embellishments. Remember that the only real rule to play along each week is to make a holiday or Christmas card.

I chose sequins as my embellishments to match the card stock colors I used.  I stamped the background with one of the stamps from WPlus9's Fair Isle Background set.

As always, I truly appreciate you stopping by and for those that leave comment love, you are super appreciated.

Oh golly, I really like that background image! So crisp and sharp. One day I might teach myself how to crochet that style. :) How fun that you have sequins that match your cardstock. The sentiment is lovely, too. Great card, Alanna!
