Christmas in September?

Hi All! I participated in a Hero Arts 90 minute scramble on the first 'night' of spring! The card was based on a photo for inspiration. This had me stumped for a while as I didn't know where to start. I recently purchased some Christmas stamps and the colours were light blue, green and red which were perfect colours for Christmas. I stamped my bauble and sentiment with Versamark and embossed with green glitter (my recent purchase at Paperific Expo). The bauble was then coloured with Broken China distress marker and sprayed with Perfect Pearls. This gave a really interesting dimension to the bauble (I will be making lots of baubles this way for all my Christmas cards)! I finished off the card with a bit of scoring and a pretty red ribbon and red stickles on the bauble (it was still wet when the photo was taken!). I'm submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge and the Moxie Fab World Gallon/Quart/Pint challenge - Gallon colour is blue, Quart colour is green and the Pint colour is red. A Blog Named Hero just announced their next challenge - Embossing, perfect! Thanks for dropping by!
