Christmas Time

Hello again!  It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  Mary is hosting this week and she has chosen a beautiful combination of Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Gold, with a dessert option to use enamel or Nuvo drops.  I totally forgot about dessert as I was making my card, so no additional embellies this week.

I decided to make my own background on the Tranquil Tide panel and gold heat emboss the images.  I used a variety of little stamps from the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit, all of them centered around fun little Christmas images.  Using a Misti, I laid out about 2/3rds of the design on the panel, stamped and heat set, then rearranged the remainder of the design.  After adhering the completed panel to the Lemon Lime Twist card base, the word Merry was die cut and the word Christmas stamped and heat embossed.  Both were added to a vellum circle to finish things off.

Thanks for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added a link to SCS above, so I hope you'll check out this week's Color Challenge!
