A Cool Hybrid Card for Create


This week at Create with Connie and Mary we have a Theme Challenge for you.  The Challenge is:

 COOL CHRISTMAS CARD 
 that one of a kind for someone special.

I'm not sure if this is really a Cool Card, but I added Marina Mist, and then Cherry Cobbler which is on the cooler side of the red spectrum.  But other C words come to mind really, like "cluttered", "crazy", or "crowded".  Once I put this baby together, I pulled back and realized just how much I put on it.  This is a hybrid card as the images from Established Elegance, and Seasons Greetings were printed out of My Digital Studio. 

 I really wanted to make a card for my Mom.  She loves traditional Christmas themes and I thought that vintage would be a great way to go.   Below you will find several closeups to give you another peek at some of the little details!

Whoa! What a great card. I sure love it but would not want to make that one over and over again. Who could afford it?
