Holiday Wishes, Waltzingmouse Style

I'm a sucker for soft pastels for Christmas. I love 'em. So when I saw this card by Debbie Olson, I had to CASE it. First, I HAD to have that stamp, so I ordered Very Vintage Christmas from Claire at Waltzingmouse, who is just fabulous to deal with. Shipping was much faster than I'd imagined it would be from Ireland. I'm using SCS SC255 for my layout.

For the main image, I pretty much did exactly as Debbie did, right down to the pearls. Hey, why mess with perfection? Paper is Webster's Pages and card stock is Mellow Moss and Groovy Guava. That gorgeous silk ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's store and I tied the bow with my Bow Easy, also available there.

I'm so glad you stopped by today--I love it when you do!
