Merry Christmas

Let's talk about procrastination.  I meant to finish this card last night but felt like doing some other things instead.  Thinking that I will have enough to to complete it this morning, I didn't even jot down how I wanted the card to be made.

This morning I woke up with fragmented pieces of memory of the card.  I lost the vision of it.

Lesson learned.

Like many times before, the card evolved as I was making it.  The sketch was adopted from Merry Monday and the color scheme from Dynamic Duos:

I've chosen green to complete my Christmas card:

It is made of cardstocks only.  It has a card base of Cashmere cardstock, which was stamped repeatedly with the sentiment "Merry Christmas", then it is a Cocoa cardstock square as a mat for the bauble, made with Colonial White base and Cranberry decorative layer.  Finally I made the bow out of New England Ivy cardstock, with the help of Cricut Artiste cartridge.  An pearl accent in the middle of the bow, done!
