Doodle Pantry Blessed Christmas

Hello my friends! Well, after a few rough days I am feeling way better and have been able to create some cards!! Today's card I am just absolutely thrilled with...I wanted to create a simple, serene yet elegant card that possibly would be my Christmas card for this year...and this one MAY be the winner! The image I used is from Doodle Pantry and called Blessed Christmas...this was a pre-colored image and the sentiment on the card ALSO comes with the image! Once I had my image manipulated in Photoshop, printed it and then embossed around it with one of my new Sizzix embossing folders....and shame on me I was so excited to use it I forgot to mark the folder with it's name! But it is a pretty popular folder right now so I am sure many of you have seen it, or have it! I scored my base card a little larger and mounted the image on the base card...then I added the Diamond Stickles all the way around the embossed area. Thanks so much for stopping by, leaving some love and sharing your day with me! I so appreciate you all. Have a great day!

HUGS!
Vicki
