First Christmas Card!

I haven't made many Christmas cards yet, I just don't get the time. I have made this week an exception though and have enjoyed a bit of a crafty week but will have to catch up with other things next week... maybe!

The 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge are looking for DT members. I would love to join a DT. If I had deadlines to meet then my crafting could become a higher priority than it is now and I wouldn't feel so guilty about not doing other things! So I thought I would throw my hat into the ring and make a card to fit their sketch. The card I have made also fits nicely with the non-traditional colour Christmas card theme on one of my favourite challenge blogs, Less is More.

I have adopted a colour scheme of neutrals and metallic neutrals. The stamp is Woodware's Christmas tree bubble stamp which I have stamped with white ink and embossed with white glitter EP. It has been adorned with a variety of adhesive gems & pearls, small brads, Craftwork Cards' Candi and metallic markers. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. As you can see I have followed 52CCT's sketch quite closely. Instead of stitching around the edge I have matted and layered the stamped panel onto kraft cardstock.

So I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today
