Christmas Maiden:


Good morning all!  It's Tuesday, which means it is not Monday.  Grrrr...  I didn't like Monday, it started off wrong and continued from there.

I tried a vintage patchwork effect and I actually have six background papers.  But I see now, that well, I can't see them!!!  Hmmm... how did that happen?
 
So do you see all the flowers on my Christmas card??   I don't associate flowers with Christmas at all so I can't tell if this card is rocking or failing.

I also embossed all the flowers with an iridescent powder.  Hmmm...  I can't see that either - what the heck!?!?!?
Card Ingredients:  The House Across the Bay digi, DCWV Timeless Type, Tim Holtz Crowded Attic, and K&Co BW Flora & Fauna Ledger papers, Recollections cardstock, KaiserCraft gems, Recollections pearls, Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder, Craft Smart Chocolate ink, random twine.  Tools:  sewing machine, C.C. Designs Phlox Flowers and Leafy Branch cutters, Martha Stewart stylus, Making Memories edge scraper, heat gun.

I made this Christmas card for the following challenges:  Stampin' Sisters in Christ - dies, ABC Christmas - patchwork, Christmas Stampin' - non traditional colors, jingle belles - bingo (flowers, bling, embossing), Christmas Card Challenge - sketch:




Have a super wonderful Tuesday and thanks for the visit.
