One more in under the wire!

Geez, I have had the ugliest stomach bug and it has really stripped me of my energy and my mojo!  Till today!  I finally had a second to create today and I had so much fun with this card.  I used the new 411 sketch challenge and combined it with this week's Latenightstamper's challenge to Let it Shine.  Bring on the Bling--you get the idea. So I began by coloring my rhinestones with a marker so they would be red. The rest evolved from there.  Not really sure how much it looks like what I had in mind but I kind of like it any way.  Different.  And the sentiment seemed to fit perfect!  Here is the sketch...


And my card.....




Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Scenic Season, Contempo Christmas
Paper: Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, and scrap dp
Ink: Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Other: rhinestones, markers

Hope you had a great week--stay healthy--don't catch that stomach bug!  
Trust me it is HORRIBLE!
