Christmas Card - October 2010

Do you believe we are at the end of October already?? Where did that month go anyway? I tried a couple of new things with this card. I made the flower using three different sizes of Marvy's retro flower punches. Then I sprayed it with water, crumbled it and after it dried I sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. Then I glued a glass pearl for the center.

For the background behind the flower, I used Spellbinder's Lotus Pendent. I got the idea from Selma from Selma's Stamping Corner (you can view her blog from my sideboard, she is amazing). She covered the back of the pendent so that it would pop. I thought it was so pretty, I had to try it. I think it turned out nice.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Only 60 days until Christmas!!! Yikes!!!
