Season's Greetings 22

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 20, 2015 @ 1:08 AM | , ,

Hi there! Today I have a rather simple Christmas card to share featuring a fun tree image from a PTI stamp set that I recently purchased along with pretty patterned Tim Holtz papers. 
I stamped and heat embossed the image then applied Distress Ink around the image to make it stand out as it sort of faded into the background:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Freshly Made Sketches:
and I'm also joining along with the current Card Concept challenge where the theme is Festive Glory. I was inspired by the gingham pattern and vintage vibe of the photo to create this Clean & Graphic Christmas card:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
