A Little Christmas Cheer

I am hosting the weekly challenge on CK/PCMB this week. My challenge is to create a Christmas theme project with at least one non-traditional element. It could be a non-traditional color scheme, an image that was not originally intended for Christmas, a humorous theme, etc. For my sample card I chose an image that was not originally intended for Christmas - Cosmobella. I chose some retro style papers to go with the image and printed the sentiment on the computer using a retro font.

Stamp: Cosmobella (Stamping Bella); sentiment is computer generated using font
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine); Peeled Paint Distress Ink (Ranger)
Paper: White cardstock; blue cardstock and DP - Holiday (Paper Salon); red scraps
Embellishments: Circle Nestabilities; corner rounder punch; brads; ribbon
Technique: Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits
Finished card size: A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/1")

Hey Judy! Are you still out there? You've been awfully quite for months so I thought I would check in on you. Hope all is well!

Hmmmmm me thinks you need to start posting your card class creations on your blog for all to see. It's been awhile since you posted. You need to dust off this blog and get it going again girl!
