I'm Happy

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I'm well and truly into Christmas card making mode at the moment as we go away on Thursday and when we come back it will be very near to Christmas. This is one that I made with my favourite (for this week, my favourites change daily) Tomorrow Doesn't Exist plate from Visible Image.

This one is for my sons girlfriend and I didn't want it to be too traditional, so I chose my pink and purple DecoArt paints...

and sponged away with a piece of foam.

Then out with my trusty home made stencil

and the white gesso to build a bokeh background. I really do like this as a background as the images really pop from it. 

I decided to chop a bit off to make a rectangular card and used this as a practice to make sure my embossing powder showed up.

I stamped my happy girl first and embossed with black EP. It's not a traditional Christmas stamp, but it's how I feel at this time of year! Then came the words from Go To Christmas Words, and Happy from the Tomorrow Doesn't Exist plate. There's also stars from Universal and edgy from De-stressed backgrounds.
So I didn't forget it was a Christmas card I gave my girl a felt Santa hat and a bit of bling.

There's also our facebook page and group where there's new inspiration every day.

I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty 'grungy' challenge - who says grungy can't be pink :-)

I hope you (and she) likes my card, have a fun week and thanks very much for looking x
