Dry Spell

I've hit upon a bit of a dry spell the last few days and haven't
been able to create a card.  I've got a lot of ideas floating around
in my head but I can't seem to put those ideas to paper.
Hopefully this won't last long.

I made this card last week for the weekly challenge at
but I was without internet for a few days and was unable to
post it in time.

It started out as a few leftover pieces from other cards. The 
challenge was to use mistletoe on a card. I realize this is holly but
I didn't have any mistletoe stamps so I thought I'd play with it
a little. 

I've had this early espresso tulle for a while now but I haven't
played with it at all. I decided it was time to try it out on this
card. Next I added the early espresso scalloped piece and
embossed the greeting in early espresso.

Now to break my dry spell...

card stock: whisper white, early espresso
dsp: fresh prints dsp stack
stamp set: watercolor winter, more merry messages
ink: real red, cherry cobbler, wild wasabi, old olive
big shot: chalk talk framelits
punch: scallop edge border
early espresso embossing powder
early espresso tulle

Happy Stampin'
and thanks for visiting!
