This looks like a holiday card I would have made a couple years ago for some reason. Hope it's not too outdated. This is a stamp I've used for the last 2 years and am bored with the same ole stamps. I did order one with a cute snow bird, so I'll be doing that one next.
I stamped the image/sentiment using my Misti - they are wonderful! I can easily duplicate this stamping as you all know. It came in handy because I couldn't get the stamp clear enough on the watercolor paper. That was worth it right off the bat.
Anyway, just water colored, added some crystal effects with a little shimmer, paper pierced, added a few red dots and popped up over the dp I chose. I tried to make it minimal, and although it looks minimal, I was wanting to not use dp, dots, paper piercing and crystal effects. It was just missing something as a complete CAS card, but I am determined to go all CAS. The good news is that this will mail easily!!!

Wow! This is a beauty, Pam. Sure doesn't look outdated.....what do you mean saying such a thing? :):):) Love the dp and your watercoloring. I'm so happy to hear you got the MISTI. It is my favorite tool. Sounds as if you are enjoying it, also. I know you had a great time with Audrey at the convention. I'm sure you can get in a lot of trouble at those places. Ha I look forward to seeing your next card with the new stamp you have ordered.
Have a fab weekend, my friend.

Oh, sweet Pam! I LOVE it, and what do you mean - outdated? No way...it's beautiful...more than beautiful! I love this sweet stamp of pine with the ornaments on it...and love the Glossy Accents you've added! And what great DP and piercing! (You know I LOVE piercing, right? Hehe!) Love that you have a MISTI now and that you've watercolored - woohoo! So glad you and Audrey had such fun! Definitely need to hear more about it. And I'm with you about more CAS cards! Love it, sweet and precious friend! You are LOVED! xoxo

You could never be outdated, my friend! Your cards are ALWAYS a treat as are your pictures of them (love the bells). I like that image and your watercoloring really makes it pop. Lovely card - I so love your Christmas cards and hope you get a chance to make more than usual this year.
BTW - I have missed you bunches!!! Hugz - millions of them.
