Hello There

Check out my sidebar for a link to my blog candy!

     These Czes Pachela Toby Tumble images from Cuddly Buddly are just so sweet.  This is a for fun card that I definitely had fun making.  More distress ink practice.  :-)  I used some Pearl Perfect Pearls for the snow and Toby's hat.
     I added some gold embossing powder to the edge of the large DP base mat and to the button centers.  There's a little cheese cloth under the image panel.  For the little foliage spray I used a couple of tiny pine cones I picked up at Hobby Lobby last week.  The red stamens were in same pack.  The holly leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and I embossed the lines into them.  The flower is a Prima that I added a large pearl to the center of and used Glossy Accents to add some gold microbeads.  The ticket is Jenni Bowlin.
     Another Christmas card down.  :-)  Hope you like it.  I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
