Christmas Blessings

Hi Crafty Friends! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I had my 3 year old nephew here and let me tell you it was a busy time. That accounts for my lack of posts. I am watching him again all next week and I hope to be better prepared. I love him but, boy, does he wear me out!!

Today I have a tent card to share with you. I found this idea on Splitcoast Stampers a while back.

I created this card in my Gypsy and even did some machine stitching with my sewing machine.

Here is a side view.

Here is a close up to see some of the detail.

Here is the details:

Christmas cartridge (Gypsy download) ~ wreath and candle
Plantin Schoolbook ~ circle to create window in card
Lacy Labels Cricut Lite ~ tag
Scrappy Moms Stamps "Winter Wishes" ~ sentiment
Echo Park "Seasons Greetings"(purcahsed from Shop Pumpkin Spice :) ~ patterned papers
Thread for machine stitching
My Craft Spot Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon
Prima Flower
The Paper Studio pearls and gems
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye and Aged Mahogany
Ranger Glossy Accents ~ used on the candle to make it look like wax
Yellow Stickles ~ flame

I hope you like my card!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

My Craft Spot ~ "Christmas Through the Window"
Robin's Creative Cottage ~ "Let It Sparkle"
Cooking with Cricut ~ "Candles, Wreaths, and Pine Cones"

This card made top 5
