Now on to my card..... Par-rum-pa-pum-pum.......

This image on this card is from High Hopes Stamps. I used the SC148 Sketch for this card.

Stamps - High Hopes, SU Wishing You Cheer

Paper - whisper white, cranberry crisp, basic grey, Michael's and Costco.

Ink - classic black, close to cocoa

Accents - ribbon, stitching, embossing, brads, stickles, stardust pens, punch for musical notes

The stable is simply strips of paper sewn on the image. The sentiment is computer generated, I used Prismacolor pencils (oms) and H20's to color the image.

Have a Great Day Everyone!! Thanks for looking and for all your Wonderful comments!!
