Hi everyone! I'm almost done with all my holiday cards now, just a couple more to go! Then it's on to addressing envelopes and making a trip to the post office! I always let my husband decide which card to send to whom. It's lots of fun watching him match the cards with personalities!!! On this card I really like the color combination which was inspired by the patterned paper. The image and sentiment used on today's card are from the Gloria digital stamp set by Designed2Delight.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with White Cardstock then Florentine Ribbons patterned paper. The shadow layer is London Town Red patterned paper layered on White Cardstock. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I layered it on Bravo Burgundy and rounded the top two corners. To embellish the card I added some lace, a white bow, tons of stitching and finished it off with some pearls.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
