Tidings of Comfort & Joy

This is my first Christmas card for this year.  I love the way it turned out. The card base is textured Always Artichoke, 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 folded in half. The mats are Always Artichoke also as well as the Sizzlets Lots of Tags label 2 die, and the small buttons.  I used the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on the Cherry Cobler panel. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobler on Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) CS, and inked on the edge with Soft Suede ink.  I used the gold cord from last years' Holiday Mini.  That's about it. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

Double challenge

This is my first time participating in both of these challenges and I combined both challenges, the Mojo Monday week 155 and PPA59- celebrity color challenge.  I had fun making this card and am looking forward to participating in more challenges since I started my new blog.
All products are by Stampin Up:  Tempting Turquoise & Whisper White CS, So Saffron DSP and ink, Old Olive DSP, ink, and ribbon. I used the large and small tag punches and cut the tags down a little.  The stamp sets are Vintage Vogue and Vintage Labels.  I used one of the new Antique brads for thecenter of the flower. Thanks for stopping by blog.
