Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

Happy Thursday, everyone! We had a lot of fun at the My Favorite Things Release Party last night! There were lots of prizes given away, and Kim announced the new contest, So You Think You Can Stamp!

Here's a card I shared last night. The image is from the new MFT set Santa Baby. I colored with Copics and added some Stickles. Before I adhered the ribbon, I gathered it at the top by pulling on the stitching from the end . I sponged everything (including the ribbon!) to give it a more antiqued, vintage look. The paper is the new Eskimo Kisses by BasicGrey.

I have two kids off school today for fall break -- all four of them will be off tomorrow! It looks like our weekend has already begun! :) I hope you're having a good day -- thanks so much for stopping by!

I really love this card and the stamp set is on its way! I will definitely be gathering my ribbon like you did.

Beautifully coloured as usual! I especially love how you've ruffled that ribbon, making it a little more feminine
