A Little Xmas Joy... on a Sleigh!

Hi all!

I have a sweet little Christmas card to share tonight using a Pure Innocence stamp set. I stamped the little girl and her sleigh in black ink on Buttercream cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I added a touch of glitter to the tree using Ruby Red Stickles (courtesy of my mom - she sent me a whole bunch of different colors! Yay!)

As usual I stitched the edges of the layers with my sewing machine and used some twine and ribbon to accent the main image. I cut a square from Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped the sentiment. I used the Corner Chomper to round the corners and a 1/16" circle punch for the two little holes. I adhered the sentiment in place with dimensionals and then threaded more the twine through the holes and tied in place. I should warn you... I bought a lot of this twine... you may be seeing it again and again on my projects. :)
