Faux Postage for Christmas

It's cloudy in PA this morning, so I wasn't able to get a true-color photo of this card, but this was the best I could come up with. I used the faux postage technique and a very old retired SU! ornament image for this one. The DP is Jovial by Basic Grey, and can you imagine I bought this paper pack at the Valley Forge convention back in July and just opened it a week ago!! What was I thinking??
Anyhoo.......I colored the ornaments with gold & silver deco pens and some Tombows and embossed the Snow Swirled sentiment with gold ep. I added some gold ribbon and a tiny bow and I have one more Christmas card to add to my collection.
Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great Tuesday!

I think the colors are looking fine, Carol! Hubby took me to L&L today for a little pre-birthday shopping. She was so wiped out of stuff but I did find a few things. That Jovial paper is mighty nice, huh?
