Thank you Shirley for the fun challenge. Sorry for the poor picture, but it's a dark wet day here today.
The Twisted Sistah challenge was to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I stamped the image on vellum with chocolate chip and then brayered with a spectrum ink pad. This was definitely 'out of the box' for me!!
Sorry this is late, Sistahs. LYMI!!!
Thanks for looking!!

Oh My Gosh Darla, this is lovely! I love everything about this card--the ornament, the leaves, the layout, colors and the fabulous scalloped edge. The main image is so beautiful. This just turned out so gorgeous Darla. The gold really pops--it's just the right amount of bling! Into my favs this goes. TFS
