Beccy Muir's 30th challenge of the month is to do something we love. It is a joy to create Christmas cards - we like to remind our friends and family of the birth of Jesus - the reason for the season. On another level, I love to use embossing folders. Though I have LOTS of pattern paper, I really like the clean look of cream or white and a dark color. Another thing I really like to do is to follow sketches and combine with other challenges - and to create many different looks with the same image.

The DP has been in my stash for a couple of years, as have the gems. The image is one I stamped a few years ago - I added some sparkly glitter from Studio G - to create garlands on the trees.

There is SO much to do - and now we are adding phone shopping to the list - apparently the battery has died as it will not keep a charge. This is not the time to be without a phone - we only have one!
Back to the card - this is the Stampendous set used for most cards this year. The DP is from the Paper Studio pad called Faith, and the faux stitched ribbon is by Ribbon Boutique. I used chalk pencils for coloring, and distressed the edges.

By the way - something happened between the card and the computer screen - I lightly sponged the sky, but IRL it does not have a dark cloud LOL!!!
