'Tis The Season

Just a quick post on this rainy day.
This is my first Christmas card for the season thanks to the new Christmas challenge over at 'Tis The Season
Here is their very first sketch!
I did a lot of inking of all the edges with Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Fired Brick Distress Inks.
 Snowflake stamps and die are Papertrey Ink, Peace Be Still set.
I added a few gemstones to the bottom flake and I used lace ribbon.
If you are looking for some Christmas inspiration stop by 'Tis The Season and see what their DT has for inspiration.

Hope all my blog friends are having a great week! I have been cooking comfort food this week. Things like pumpkin pie, Chicken Pot Pie and tonight I'm making an apple pie. It's just that time of year.

  3. Teresa, I think your first card for the season turned out great! I love the added sponging. I'm a big sponger myself! Thanks for playing with us at 'Tis The Season.
