Silver Seasons

It's been a while since my last post. Unfortunately my depression gets the best of me sometimes and I can't seem to do the things I love to do. But I'm climbing out of the pit, and feeling like myself again! I dove right into the SCS sketch challenge for today! I was also checking out my fave blogs and Sharon Johnson had these wonderful Christmas cards. She brought back some fond memories of Christmases long ago when I was a little girl. Every year my mom decorated out REAL Christmas tree with silver balls and blue lights, and every year we would beg her if we could have multi-colored lights, and she would never budge! It wasn't until I was in my 20s that she broke down and changed the colors of the tree, but you know what?~ I love those childhood memories!
Anyway, I stamped my tree and snowflakes with Versa Mark and embossed them with Aegean Silver embossing powder(Judi~Kins) and I used white ep for my sentiment. I popped up the main panel and snowflakes with dimentionals, pierced the blue panel and added faux stitching with a white gel pen. I also pierced the right corners of the card, and added some small half pearl stickers to my tree and snowflake centers.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your evening, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Hugs and Smiles~
