Caring Hearts Blog Hop
Welcome to the Caring Hearts Blog Hop! You should be coming from Ayana's blog. If you didn't come from her blog, you should definitely start here to view the entire blog hop. The Caring Hearts Card Drive aims to collect holiday cards (Thanksgiving and Christmas) for the elderly. You have until November 15 to create a Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Winter Holiday card and upload it to this blog post -- and all entries will get you entered for some fun prizes. More details about the card drive are also posted over there.
Today I'm sharing a little Christmas card.
Normally I'm not a gold person but I felt compelled to use some gold. I stamped the music background using Musical Backgrounds from WMS. I used VersaMark and then I dusted the entire background with gold Perfect Pearls. Then I sprayed the entire piece with a mist I created with water and gold perfect pearls.
The tag comes from Nutcracker Sweet and the sentiment comes from Compliments of the Season. I used some crinkly gold ribbon and some pins to finish the card off.
Thanks for stopping by! Cassie's blog is the next stop on the blog hop! Be sure to see what she has up her sleeve!
