Wishing you

It's July!!  Ack!  Where is this year going?  Have you gotten started on your Christmas cards yet?  Well, it's time.  And we have a new challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra to help you along.  As always, we are a month long, Anything Goes (as long as it's Christmas-related) challenge and our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is the card I created using one of their adorable images:
 Isn't that angel just the sweetest?!  I colored the letters with a very subtle ombre and added some wink of stella on top.  I also added it to the wings of the angel.  You can see it a bit in the next photo:
The ribbon was a little bitty scrap from my bits and pieces pile and the button was left over from a long ago sewing project.  Together they were the perfect finishing touches.
I hope you will play along with us this month, I can't wait to see what you create.
