Season's Greetings

Happy Tuesday! Tonight I wanted to work on the Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge that I play along with. If you play each month you get  free digis to play with the next month. This month we are playing with digital stamps from DigiStamps4Joy.

I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Honeycomb and sponged lightly over the top with red ink.I adhered two sections of ribbon to the honeycomb background. Using Spellbinders to cut out the image and sponged with Dandelion ink. I attached a cute little metal embellishment that I found at Target. I am entering these challenges:
Outlawz Saturday challenge: primary color begins with first letter of your first name (Mine was kind of tough. I had to search the Internet to find a color that began with D and I came up with Dandelion and even had Dandelion ink to use. LOL!)
So this is a bit different than I normally make as a Christmas card but it's kind of cute. I do like those metal embellishments I found at Target. I'll have to use them more often. We are getting a little rain today. Not much but the weather is supposed to be cooler the rest of the week. It may be cool enough to turn the heat on. But I have to convince my hubby of that first. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll leave me a comment and come back again soon.
