Stampin' Royalty Challenge #103


Well I'm back in the saddle, two posts on two days in a row - kinda amazing right?  This week over at Stampin' Royalty we have a theme challenge for you.  The theme is, of course, CHRISTMAS!!


 I whipped up this card very quickly (well in my brain, the planning went really quick) but, in actuality, it took a few days as I really glued that rosette and it needed to dry properly.  I'm a bit bummed because all the photos I took of it make the circle in the middle look off-centre, and it's actually straight in real life, but now I've given the card to Teagan's daycare, so I can't really ask for it back now, can I?  This was super easy to make though.  The rosette and the background paper are from the 'letters to Santa' DSP which is NOT retiring soon as it's in the main Catalogue.  I used the tea stain and the mahogany inks from the distressing kit to sponge the edges for a more vintage feel.

Great card, I am not sure why I can not bring my self to use my cute little felt pieces. Thanks for the inspiration!
