My card is based on the sketch below from Lesley for the Merry Monday Challenge #26 (my other absolute favorite Christmas card challenge):
I've had a super busy week and this is the first card I've made since Monday! I think I'm having withdrawals!! We took a quick 3 day trip for some more college stuff - following a business trip that I made right before that - so it is no understatement when I tell you that my house is a disaster and I have a pile of laundry almost as tall a me to take care of today. But, last night I figured that the house would still be a mess today and the laundry will patiently wait for me - so I ran up to my card room shortly after we got home and put together this card (I'm truly obsessed, I know) :o)
I decided to stay true to Lesley's sketch and made a quick CAS card - but I did have to add just a bit of bling...
I fussed around with the background I wanted to use on this card and finally ended up with a retired DSP called "Merry Moments" from 2009. I printed the image and sentiment from "Come to Bethlehem" using My Digital Studio - but this is also a current stamp set in the Stampin Up catalog. With the exception of my shiny star to lead the three wise men, my card is monochromatic using Old Olive (one of my favorites for all occassions, but especially Christmas cards).
Thanks for stopping by to visit - I'm so glad that you did! Hope you like this very Clean and Simple card today. Gotta go - my son wants me to go climb a mountain with him (UGH!) - might be a good idea after all the restaurant food I've been eating these past couple of weeks. Hugs!!
