Retro Christmas

I hope your holiday preparations are well under way and things are going as planned. Mine are a little slow this year due to all the change in my life but as old traditions pass, new ones take their place! I'm happy to say that although I'm a little behind this year, I'm still enjoying every bit of this season.

I have a "retro" card for you today...I'm not really a retro kind of girl, I like the country look much better but sometimes you need to break out of the norm. I used two of DRS's newest images...



I'm in love with this new shooting star image and I thought the sentiment was "simply" perfect! I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the side and a Making Memories charm is tied to the ribbon with silver cord. As an after thought, after I took the photo, I found a teeny tiny star jewel that I glued to the star in the sentiment. I'm a little tired after last nights work holiday party so retaking photos is not an option today ;). It's hard to tell in the photo, but the star was stamped a second time on silver mirror paper and cut out. I adhered it with a pop dot.

Thanks for checking in...
See you soon...
