Old Fashioned Christmas...





I finally was able to do a card for the Winter Wonderland challenge! The challenge was sleigh bells! So I used my justrite stamp set that I have not had a chance to colour up and thought it was perfect for this challenge. I gold embossed the sleigh with gold embossing powder from CTMH, and then coloured in the image with lyras and primas pencils! I used my "swirls" diecut for the white background. I then used my scallop scissors to do a burgundy scallop around the image! If you get a chance pop over to winter wonderlands blog and join in on the fun!
