MCV - Addicted to Stamps and More - Happy Holidays

Hello Everyone!

A couple of challenges:

Muse: ChristmasVisions 59

Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday

Today, playing cards with MCV where GD Meredith MacRitchie provided a beautiful card for our inspirations. I like tags on cards, although I seem to struggle with size, etc., on mine. From Michelle's card I used hand stamped flower background panel, tag with scallop edge, red and black sentiment with part of the sentiment die cut, vellum, general layout.  My main panel was created using a ghosting technique (randomly stamp images with white pigment ink, let dry thoroughly, apply/blend colored ink with a blending tool). The centers of the flowers were stamped with gold Delicata ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Also, linking to Addicted to Stamps and More where the theme is holiday.

Wish you an enjoyable day!
