Howdy bloggers!  It's Saturday, and the weather here in PA is SO NICE!  Hubby and I spent some time walking around Gettysburg, and stopping at yard sales.  He *LOVES* yard sales!  LOL!  
Anyhow, Deanne and the team at the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog want to see some garland, leaves, and/or Christmas flowers.  This should be a fun one!  Here is what I made:

I found this image in my *HUGE* pile of printed images and thought this was perfect for the challenge.  This comes from MelJens Designs.  I love her images, I wish she was still making them!  Anyway, I used a Zig pen in Pure Green to go over the branches, which turned out perfect, and colored the stars and JOY with alcohol markers.  I went over those with clear Wink of Stella also.  I wanted the image panel to be the star of the show, so I just backed it with a dark red big scalloped rectangle from Spellbinders, and embossed the card base with a folder from Momenta (I think?).  I did have some difficulty trying to emboss the card base, which is 110lb.  The left edge wouldn't emboss for me, so I covered it with a ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Make sure you take the time to stop by the CCAYR blog to see what my team mates have made to inspire you, and to join in on the fun!

Take care, and God Bless!
