Colorful Holiday Cheer!


When I finished this card I showed it to hubby and he said, "Wow, that's colorful!" :) I'm not sure it was a compliment, but I'll just consider it one. ;)

The process I go through to create a card is really rather humorous, and perhaps somewhat entertaining. :) I started off with a completely different patterned paper with wild wasabi and purely pomegranate cardstock. I then selected the rubber stamp, stamped it with wild wasabi and versamark and embossed with clear detail embossing powder. This made the image darker, so then I matted it with garden green instead and changed my mind on the patterned paper too! LoL I'm sure you get the picture...

Have you had a good weekend? I hope so! It went WAY too FAST for me! Yesterday, was such a busy day with the Christmas party and today I slept later than I should have. This afternoon, I went to work to decorate a smiley face tree in my office. I forgot my camera, but will take a photo tomorrow so you can see it. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Holiday Smiles, Pam :)
