Season's Greetings!



I ordered some things from Ellen Hutson's online store http://www.ellenhutson.com/servlet/StoreFront about a month ago and inside my package was the most delightful *thank you*. She had packaged up some yummy satin ribbon in a small bag with a beautiful christmas tree image that she had colored inside. It was so cute and thoughtful. As I was cleaning my *hazard zone* stamp area yesterday, I found the ribbon and set it aside so that I could use it. The image reminded me of one of the new images from The Saltbox Studio and I decided to use it for the focal point of my card today. I used my neglected nestablities dies to create the scalloped rectangle and then stamped my image with Palette Noir ink. I colored the image with an assortment of copic and prismacolor markers. After I had finished coloring the tree, I added a few diamond stickles to the bulbs and star. I decided I had better use the nestabilities that I own since I put in an order to spellbinders for more.
LOL! You all are such enbablers, let me tell you!!!!! I sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress ink by Ranger. The background was run through my cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. Of course the satin ribbon was the finishing touch with a few buttons for a homespun feel! Thanks for fluttering by!

I bought a bunch from Ellen Hutson's place too! LOL She is a local here, and I just love going to see her place (warehouse & studio), not her actual house - but I bet that would be awesome too. Anyway, I want to say that I love your card today! It's such a classic and looks so pretty with the touch of ribbon!
