A Faux Feel Challenge.....

Good morning! The sun is shining and I have got coffee in hand and a day full of happiness ahead of me!

Splitcoaststampers Thursday challenge is called Ways to Use It and this week our challenge is to use texture on our creation, so I sort of copped out and used paper that looked like it had texture to it!

I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6 x 6 paper pad, Finial and Woodland sheets and, using a simple but effective layout, created a gorgeous Christmas card if I do say so myself haha!!

I love the acetate snowflakes - aren't they pretty - too bad I don't know where they are from! Dang it - I ripped open the package a few weeks ago and then promptly forgot the manufacturer - anyone?anyone? Beuller?

I used Papertrey Ink's Peaceful Poinsettia for the sentiment, stamped in Scarlet Jewel, and then my EK Success edger for the scallops - love it!

I sewed around the edges and for the finale, I added a Zva Creative clear gem that I coloured with my copic marker!

This card was easy-ness at it's best and wonderful for mass producing!
