Some of our favorite things

For us here in my part of the world, this was the last day off of the last long weekend (ie. 3 days due to a stat holiday) before Christmas...eek!!  I went by Micheals this morning at about 10 am and it was hopping, crafty Christmas decorations were flying off the shelves and there was a huge line up to check out.  I expect a lot of beautiful things were not only purchased but also created today!

For my part, I have a festive card to share with you, what else would you expect LOL!
My challenge here was to make a card using only Gina K stamps, using DP from her online store, an embossing folder, a die cut, and hand cut stitching...and I did it, amazingly enough!

The sentiment and flower are both from GinaK (rubber) and the pin stripe paper in the back is digi paper from her store.  For the flower, I stamped it 3 times, hand cut it out, and then shaped and layered it up, and added a pearl centre.  I added some pearl paint on top of the embossed tree, and used the Copic Airbrush system to add colour to the sentiment.

Good luck to all of you as you get ready for Christmas!
