Well, it looks like I'm starting to get my MOJO back. All week I've been trying to work on projects and they just wouldn't come together. Finally tonight I sat down and it just worked. This card is actually much prettier in person. I just couldn't get my camera to get a good shot. My hubby bought it for me just over 5 years ago when digitals were first coming out and it was a great one then. But now I'm finding that without flash or a tripod I just can't get a good clear image. Argh.......
I used my new Squigglefly image which I won on a challenge over there. It's done by a new artist, Marla Shega, it's called "Kris Kringle". She has several others and they're all just as fantastic. You can check them out here. Because it's already shaded you could use it without adding color. I actually liked adding some color to it. Like I said it's much brighter in person. I used papers from my September Swirlydoo's Kit. All of the embellishments were from Swirly kits as well. The sentiment tag is a stamp from Image Tree I got in a blog candy I won early this year from Sabrina. It just keeps on giving! The bow was made with my bow easy. I followed the sketch at Squigglefly on Papercraft Planet. The other challenges I've entered are listed at the bottom of this post.
I really enjoy this "old" style santa's and I hope you enjoy this card too. Have a great night and a fantastic weekend and thanks for stoppin by!
