Christmas Blog Hop and A La Card Monkey #82

Hi Everyone.  I'm trying to get back into the habit of checking some of my favorite weekly challenge sites.  I found a sketch I like on A La Card Monkey's site.  Then I discovered Shirley was hosting a Christmas blog hop.  Fun!

Here's the card I crafted this evening.

I used the color palette of Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.  The ribbon, sadly, is a discontinued SU ribbon in Old Olive.  So pretty.

I added a bit of Dazzing Diamonds to the scallop edge, and colored my rhinestones with my Old Olive marker to give them a hint of green.  I popped up the center image with dimensionals.

It's hard to see, but the Cherry Cobbler strip is embossed with one of the Texturz Backgrounds #1 plates.  Very subtle.

Be sure to check out the other entries on the Christmas blog hop.  Christmas will be here before you know it, so join the fun!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
