A Merry Christmas

Hi everyone
I only have one card today but I'm entering it into all 3 of my favorite challenge blogs
The Friday Mashup
Sara would like to see what we can do with our background stamps and mash it up with a little 3-D

Tis The Season
They have a great color challenge with an optional trim which is to use stencils

Sunday Stamps
What a great sketch

These three challenges just seem to fit together so well
Here is the card I came up

My card base is Pistachio Pudding   On Very Vanilla I double stamped The Distressed Dots Background stamp first in gold then in Pistachio Pudding   The sentiment is from Bells and Boughs and it is gold embossed   On scraps of Very Vanilla I stamped the Delightful Decorations Ornament 3 times in Pistachio Pudding and once in gold and then punched them out using the matching punch   I scored one of the green ones folded it and glued it on top of another one to make it 3-D    I matted it with gold and added the gold brads and the rhinestones   I love how it turned out
I hope you like my card
Thank You for stopping by

Karen, love how your Christmas card turned out, how you used your background stamp and stamped it with two colors, not to mention your 3-D ornament. You did a great job combining these challenges! Thanks for joining us at 'Tis the Season and the Friday Mashup.

Very pretty card--I love that you used such subtle, pale colors for your Christmas card. The ornaments fill the space very nicely. Thank you for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps this week--please join us again soon!

Yowza! (I was going to say Wow! but I see that Lisa already said that) but really... what a great job you did. I'm especially impressed with how well you combined each one perfectly. You did a great job with a difficult color combo! Congrats!
