Hi guys, as you're reading this I'll be on my way to El Paso for the holidays.  I have to admit, Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I love all the cheesy Christmas songs on the radio and I love to wrap gifts!  So, right now, I'm probably wrapping gifts while singing some cheesy song, lol.  Okay, so here's today's card:

This card has lots of my favorite elements: embossed metal, a die cut flower, a pearl pin, velvet, and jumbo scallops.  I cut a piece of my favorite Ten Seconds metal and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  My flower was made using Tim's tattered florals die and aida cloth, with a pearl brad to finish it off.  My hat pin was made using extra pearls and spacers from my bead box.  The scallops were made from Graphic 45 paper using MFT's jumbo scallop border die.  Can you see how I lined up the pearls so they look continuous from one layer to another?  I love that!

If I don't make it back here before Christmas, I wish you all a safe and wonderful holiday season.  Merry Christmas!!
