Thankfully I have another
Christmas card finished. The inspiration for this came from my friend, Tracy, who is one of the most talented, sweetest ladies I've meet since I've started blogging. Here is her tag that gave me the idea for my card...

I again used the
My Mind's Eye All Is Bright Christmas collection along with Recollections Kraft cardstock. I'm still not sure if I made the frames right, but I like the result.

My image is from the
Artistic Outpost Midwinter stamp set stamped in Jet Black Archival and embellished with Twinklets Diamond Dust (as were the Kraft frames) and edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The flowers are all from I Am Roses that were misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Spray. The Shabby Wrinkled Seam Binding bow is topped with a Teresa Collins brad. The greenery was cut from Alterations Mini Holly and Tattered Pinecone dies. The clear rhinestone is by TPC Studio.

I'm linking my card to:

Oh, wow! The fanciest tag ever! The little house in the snow reminds me of Currier and Ives Christmas scenes.
