Christmas Wishes......in August?

Good morning! I am headed out the door shortly to take my dog to the groomers, tutor, and get in my classroom a second day. I was able to get my desks ready, name tags on, and library arranged yesterday. So I am making progress in my classromm, thank goodness!

I have a card to share with you that I made awhile ago and never got around to showing you! It uses the Deck the Halls set by JustRite. The ornaments were stamped in Pure Poppy by Papertrey Ink. I cut them out, distressed the edges with a bit of brown ink, spread glossy accents over the top, and sprinkled lots of glitter! I colored the leaves with Copics, cut those out, and gave them a coating of glossy accents. I stamped the sentiment (in avocado), separately and cut it out to add to the middle of the ornament. I love that this set comes with the branch stamp. I used it to create my background for my ornaments. It looks like they are hanging off the tree......right? ; )
The "berries" were originally a cream colored pearl that I colored red with my Copics. : )


Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!!!!!
