Another Merry Monday

 
I love the challenges over at the
and I love this weeks challenge!
 
 
I spent the day yesterday with my youngest daughter
going from appointment to appointment. It was a long
day with four hours of driving, but it was filled with good news
and even a little bit of time to do some shopping for craft toys
- and who doesn't love it when that happens.
 
I came across a label maker and refills that was marked
down to 'you have to buy me' - so I did! One of the
refills was red and I knew right away that I wanted to use
it on this challenge.
 
 
While I was driving home, I created a card in my head, but
when I got home and started creating, it went a completely
different direction. The only thing that's the same is the red label.

 
The Joyful Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up is one
of my favorite Christmas stamp sets. I love how it looks
when embossed on vellum. I just wish it showed it's
true impact in the photo.
 
 
supplies:
card stock: whisper white, basic gray, smoky slate, vellum
stamp set: Joyful Christmas, en francais
ink: basic gray, vellum
big shot: decorative dots EF
embellishments: rhinestones
label maker (K&Company)
bridal embossing powder (don't remember company)
 
 
Happy Stampin'
and thanks for visiting!

  1. Beautiful embossed flower. I too love the way it looks embossed in white on vellum. The label maker label is a clever addition to this semi-formal card.
