Tinsel in a Tangle Recipe Challenge

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Macadamia


Today's challenge over on the Bugaboo challenge and inspiration blog is a fun one. it's to make a funny card and add scallops, bling, and layers to your Christmas card. how's it going getting a few holiday cards made? kind of nice to think about snow and cooler temps during these heat waves, especially here where we don't have air conditioning. ;) don't forget the big sale in the Bugaboo store that is going on all month!


for my card, I'm using 'Christmas Ornament Gal' and a sentiment from the 'Gertrude - Tinsel in a Tangle' set.


papers are from the Basic Grey 25th and Pine collection while the embellishments are from their Juniper Berry collection. the red patterned paper had the prettiest scallops on it, so I didn't feel the need to add any others.

I used a wink of stella glitter pen and both pink & clear spica glitter pens to add touches to the main image. a white gel pen was used to add dots to the card base. green pearls are at each corner of the card. the glitter rose is from Michael's and seam binding is from Zipper Stop. buttons are from my vintage stash.

thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! it really means a lot to me. :)
