Two days too late!

I was so surprised when I saw the color combination at Dynamic was the same combo I used for my Christmas cards I showed you on Thursday!  Oh, well.  I'm really getting in the Christmas mood so I didn't mind making another one today! 
My mom already has her tree up...can you believe that?!  She bought one of those pre-lit, nine-foot-tall trees from QVC and it is absolutely gorgeous!  I am jealous!  I went over and helped her put the garland on her staircase and it really made me get excited about the season.  I know, Halloween is barely over and here we are thinking about Christmas!  Crazy! 
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I thought it fit perfectly with the four elements on my card!

Blogger drives me nuts when it will not let me resize my images!  Sorry the sketch is so overpowering!  The embossed images are sponged with the same color of ink and then Illuminate Glimmer Watermark ink.  I doubt that any of my Christmas cards this year will make it without this ink.  I just love the glimmer it adds!

Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple
Tools: Holiday Collection Framelits, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, sponges
