My first Christmas Card of 2014

My New Year's resolution is to use more of the stuff I've already got in my stash. My stash includes lots of washi tapes. Love the tapes, but what to do with them? This week's sketch over at 52CCT seemed perfect for using some of those tapes.

I used a DP from Authentique for my background. I mounted the panel on foam.The stamped sentiment is from Panduro, a calendar gift from my sister a year ago. I chose to heat emboss it with silver glitter powder. I also used a silver thread for the stitching around the edges. 3 rhinsestones and that's about all I needed to make my card.

This card is for these challenges:
1) 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Sketch
2) Christmas Card Challenges - #6 No Coloring
3) Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - January Christmas Anything Goes
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Now YOU are truly inspiring. It just got over and you've hit the ground running full force! More power to ya chica...I'm impressed and your card is GORGEOUS. Love that use of Washi tape. I feel guilty now, I can feel mine staring me down right now, saying..."Lisa.....don't let us dry rot in this bowl...use us!!!"
hugs!
