A Friendly Challenge


Lastnight, a good friend of mine, Judy, challenged me to make a Christmas card, and get it posted today! We were discussing what bad bloggers we have been, and decided to challenge one another to a post off....LOL!
This card was made using the sketch at the Stamping 411 Challenge Blog. Since there is both Wet and CB embossing, it also qualifies for the Embossing Challenge at Corrosive!
I dug out an OLD OLD SU set called Peace, Joy, and Love...it is SO OLD, that is is mounted on foam! What does THAT tell you? It is one I just can't get myself to part with, though.... I did some silver embossing around the edge of the card base, the bell and the sentiment. And of course, used my CB Embossing folder for the snowflakes. Overall, an actually pretty quick card to put together, once I got going. I hope I have some mojo back~ the lack there of has really been depressing!
Thanks so much for stopping by! There will be more to see this week, I promise!
Hugs,
Julie

First of all, your blog title cracks me up - great play on words! Secondly, I really like your card! It's quite lovely and brings back some fond memories of that stamp set that I used to own, way back when! You've really done it justice here.
Thanks for playing along at the 411 this week!
