Season's Greetings

I went grocery shopping the other day and Christmas decorations were everywhere. Christmas music was playing over the speakers. It really got me excited for Christmas and in the perfect mood to make this Christmas card.
 This week's challenge over on Hand Stamped Sentiments is to go overboard and create a Christmas card that is over the top! A card decked out with lots of layers, bling, and details!
And I did just that! I even created my own doily using the scallop die and the crop-a-dile to create the holes. Then I ran it through the big shot with an embossing folder to give it some texture. I love how it turned out!
Head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see all the other wonderful examples by the designers. Then go overboard on a Christmas card and join us for the challenge this week!


P.S. Believe it or not I posted twice today so be sure to check out my Matryoshka Doll.

Wow, that doily had to take some time! Very cool though and I love everything about this card! The leaves are great!

Woo Hoo....over the top, totally! That doily looks awesome and you must have had a very patient day to punch all those holes. Love the layout and all of the layers.
