Happy Holidays

I have another card today for the current monthly challenge at Hero Arts.  This sketch was so challenging.  This is actually my second design.  I wasn’t thrilled with the first card and made some changes.  Sometimes just seeing a design completed can lead to new ideas and ways to improve your original design.  I honestly spent hours deciding on little touches.  Sometimes I get a little too obsessive about a design, and just need to set it free.  LOL!

This is the Hero Arts Sketch

And this is my card

Paper:  Recollections, Bazzill, and Tim Holtz Craft Core'dinations 
(This is my first time using this paper, and I really like it.  It has color on one side, and craft on the other.)
Ink:  Versamark, Tim Holtz Distress and Adirondack
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies/Punches:  Fiskars circle punch and PTI circle die
Other:  White embossing powder, red ribbon from PTI, and red HA gems
