Jingle Bells...WMSC21 55

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 30, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | ,

Hi There! Here today to share the card I created for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - I hope you feel inspired to play along :)
This is such a fun sketch to play with! I made a lil' pocket using some Fancy Pants DP then stitched it to my card & finished it off with a bit of lace trim. I inked up an image from Holiday Labels No. 14 with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder, stamped the Season's Greetings sentiment from Compliments of the Season then I used a S4-290 Labels Fourteen die template to cut/emboss the label. 
I wanted to show you the complete tag shown in the photo below. To create the tag, I inked up the decorative label image from Very Vintage Christmas  with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder, stamped the Jingle bells sentiment from Seasons of Love - Tag and finished it off with a few lil' jingle bells!
Close up, you get a good look at all that beautiful embossed detail. I realize I sound like a broken record BUT I love all the fine detailed artwork that Claire uses when designing her stamps & that detail not only stamps but embosses so well.
That's all for today - I hope you have a great weekend! Any fun plans? I will be spending my Saturday working but I work a 6 am - 2:30 pm shift so there is plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful weather when I get home :) Tomorrow, I have some exciting news to share so if you are not busy, please feel free to visit :)
