Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - June

It's time for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge for June.  You can see it's an Anything Goes with the optional twist of 'Joy'.  I always have to do the twist.
This looks much better IRL since the sentiment is actually silver embossed.  I didn't quite know how to attach the linen vellum so I sewed it on and for a seamstress I didn't do a very good job by not checking the tension or stitch length before I started.  The sentiment is from CF and the DSP is from American Crafts.

The winner of this challenge will get a $20 voucher to the Happy Little Stampers store so I hope you'll join me and the rest of the Design Team in making a card.

  2. Stopping by for a quick hello Bobby! I took a look back at what I've missed and you NEVER fail to inspire me Bobby. I love the pretty little swing with the floral adorned ropes and that star sugar cookie is so cute! Hope to get back on track with regular visits soon!

  3. What a lovely CAS design Bobby. The embossing is so crisp and your stitching is a great feature.

  4. Magical, Bobby ... love that stitched detailing with the tails at each end ... adds a certain driftiness to those background falling snowflakes! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. I love the color of the snowflake paper. Your silver embossing looks fantastic and I love the touch of the stitching. Really wonderful card, Bobby!

  6. This looks fab.... love the snowflake background and the stitching really adds to the design xx

  7. Great Christmas card. I love subdued colors that get even milder under the parchment. Silver plumbing looks stunning, I know that the picture does not reflect all the beauty. Great creation!

  8. Lovely soft colours on your card.
