Merry Christmas Card

Hi there,
It looked just like Spring out this morning.  The sun was out, the snow was melting and it smelled nice and fresh outside.  But this evening it was a whole different story... it's snowing!

I have a card to share today that was submitted at Paper Secrets  for their Dec 15th Color Combo Challenge.  You can make an altered item, layout or card.  Below is the color palette to use.

I chose a sketch from Becky Fleck/Page Maps (Sept 2011).
The card looked way too plain and I knew I needed to do "something" more to it.
The bow was pretty.  So, I dug out my glitter paint and a paper towel, dipping it into the paint and dabbing it onto the whole card.  I used the Nestabilities die for the shape and the sentiment was stamped with red ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok, White Cardstock
Nestabilities Die
Big Shot
Sentiment: Inkadinkadoo
Ink: A la mode Red
Clear Embossing Powder
Folk Art Extreme Glitter Paint
Satin Ribbon
Stampin' Up! Border Punch

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Merry Christmas!
Libby  :)
