Don't open til the 25th

Well it is going to be Christmas city around here in the next few days. I am not normally thinking about Christmas right now, but there are some fun challenges over at Moxie Fab World and I just can't resist.

I am also working on the sketch challenge for Midnight Madness challenges. Super fun!
Here is the sketch
My card
This challenge was for a vintage/shabby sheek card. I am really not quite a vintage kind of girl. I am more of a clean line stamping kind of girl, LOL but here I am. It was tons of fun trying different styles and having someone break them down. I did pick up some fun new things, like I am REALLY into bling right now.
I did tons of spounging and dsp layers. I stiched and lots of rumpling. When I am trying other styles I am really grateful that I have a full time job and I always think to myself don't quit your dayjob yet LOL!
This was a stampin up only card for the most part. I did add one PTI red button. Love the new dsp by the way. This collection has a really neat gold sheen and some really fun flocked dsp. I am always hesitant to crack into the specialty papers, but I am making myself cut into them this year.
It's a good life!
