It's Time to Be Jolly

I've made another Christmas card for my stash (the season is sneaking up on us!!) - this time using some sweet new stamps from Waltzingmouse from a set called Rustic Christmas.  Each of the images has a sentiment right inside it so each image could be used all by itself for a card.  Today I used three of the stamps on my card
For a little added interest - I attached a little heart brad to the loop of the stocking stamping.
 a Mirrored Star colored with Butterscotch Alcohol Ink to the top of the tree stamping
and I layered a little piece from a punched fern over the stamped leaf in the dove's beak
I drew frames around each image using a black Micron Pen and sponged the edges with Distress Tea dye Ink
I used the fun sketch from  Freshly Made Sketches

Stamps:  Rustic Christmas - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse - PTI
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse - PTI,  Ranger Distress Tea Dye
Accessories:  Idea-ology - Mirrored Star and Star Fasteners, fern punch - Martha Stewart,  black 01 Micron Pen Sakura, Butterscotch Adirondack Alcohol Ink
