Season's Greetings

I have to a little bit of clapping today before I tell you about this card. I discovered today that I was chosen in the Top 5 at Stamping 411 for my Follow Your Heart card. The ladies at Stamping 411 are some very talented artists, so this is a big honor to catch their eye and make the Top 5. Thank You Ladies!
When I saw the Less Is More challenge at Bah! Humbug! and the sketch at Just Add Ink, then to top it off the Christmas in July at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge my mind went immediately to the this stamp and papers that were Hobby Lobby's Christmas specials last year. I think the black, red, and cream combination is so striking. I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but I heat embossed the tree and added just the little bit of sewing around the edges just to frame it out. Wah-Lah-Less Is More made an easy but elegant Christmas card.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Hot Hues, Papers: Magic of the Season Paper Pack-Hobby Lobby, Stamp: Peace & Joy-Hobby Lobby, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, VersaMark Ink Pad,  Stampin Up clear embossing powder, sewing machine, black thread.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
