Simon Says Anything Goes
So away we go. This card did start out as a post for a challenge to use a tag and a Hero Art tag - well of course by the time I got mine made - the challenge was closed - but that is OK - because I have another Christmas card made.
The paper is from Melissa Francis - tried for a very vintage style and I do wish I had less of the background red paper showing - it has all the colors in it that coordinate but too modern. If only a sliver of it was showing - it would be almost perfect. The sentiment is a stamp from Hero Arts stamped in Hero Arts Ink - wet cement I believe is the color - it is greyish in color. I then took my Stardust pen and outlined the letters - it is very pretty in real life. The trim is tea dyed muslin and the poinsettia was ripped off a thing I had in a drawer. The tag was dry embossed and inked. I cut it with my Silhouette.
I am entering the tag in the Simon Says Stamp challenge - anything goes. One more Christmas card for me to send out. Yeah.
