~Fa La La~

Am I getting carried away with all the Christmas madness?? I just heard my first Christmas Carol music at a store yesterday...It made me happy :)
Can you guess what it was? You got it! Deck the Halls! Thus, the inspiration for this card!

This card features the usual suspects. A bit of lace here and there, a string or two of
pearls, soft colours, and lots of texture!

I used Basic Grey Basics pp, blue Fancy Pants pp, and My Mind's Eye dotted pink pp
from the Lush Collection.
The snowflake is from last year's Bo Bunny's winter collection. The buttons, lace, doily and pearls are from my own stash.

The rub-on is from Cosmo Cricket, and I think it goes back a couple of years at least.
I have tried to find it because I would really love another set, but like most wonderful scrappy products, they eventually get discontinued, never to be found again :(
O well, the quest continues...and who knows, I may just get lucky one day :)

I wanted to show you a close up of the snowflake treatment. I rubbed it onto a
transparency and then painted the back side with Tim Holtz Distress Paint. I really like the way it turned out! I find that it makes the snowflake stand out more than if I was just to rub it onto the card, yet it is still more transparent than it would be if I
simply used a pp to as the background.

I am off now to enjoy the fabulous fall day we have been blessed with (even though I have a million of errands to do). Can't complain though, after the rainy summer we had, this is a real treat! :)

Hope you all enjoy your day too!
