There are so many gorgeous cards by the team members to choose from and I know I'll be submitting to the challenge again but for now I started with this card by Julie Koerber. I've admired this card for a while and it's the first one I thought of when I saw the challenge. It's also perfect for the Christmas kick I'm on right now...who else is watching the Christmas movies on Hallmark this week? :)
For my card I changed the colors to darker colors, since I'm pretty traditional when it comes to Christmas. I've hoarded this DSP from SU for many years so it was perfect to break out for this card.
I kept the basic layout and just changed the border along the middle panel to a scalloped one. The oval image panel seemed too stark to me against all the papers so I used a sponge to put Old Olive around the edges. The camera didn't pick it up but I added some Wink of Stella to the Santa ornament and used a white gel pen to add some snow to the branch and the tree in Santa's arms.
Thanks for stopping by!
