May Your Season Be Merry

Just a quick Holiday card using colors from this weeks Color My Heart Color Dare #211.  Background paper is from the Swan Lake kit and the sentiment is from my Very Merry, which is my favorite new Holiday stamp set.  Included are nine great stamps to use for your cards this season.  

For the trim, a piece of Fern Thick Twine was woven into the open design of the ribbon from the Rustic Home collection.  In order to get the varied colors of the stamped image, a sponge dauber was used to apply three of the ink colors.  

In celebration of National Stamping Month, the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog has a fun challenge to use a CTMH stamp on a project.  Be sure to visit their blog to see other creative entries for this CTMH stamp challenge. 

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
