We're Blast From The Past Hopping with Taylored Expressions

This month's theme for the Blast From The Past customer blog hop with Taylored Expressions is "old Glory"...use red, white and blue. Now, nobody said we had to create a patriotic card so I went totally into left field and used these fab colours to create Project Christmas 2011 card #15!!

I used the fun sketch that Sankari provided for inspiration but I flipped it to fit the image I wanted to use from Wings of Joy.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I added some clear rhinestones to the berries then coloured them with a red copic marker. The patterned papers are from Echo Park's Wintertime collection and I added some red baker's twine for the vertical element. I cut a strip of blue with my scalloped eyelet border die and added even more bling.



Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
