Sleigh Ride

I made a tag the other day that brought out the obsessive-compulsive in me. I must have gone into my craftroom to look at it every time I walked past the door. It was just so soft and sparkly with all the glitter. I decided to make a card based on that tag. I used Blueberry Sky paper and inked up the Sunshine embossing plate with Fresh Snow Ink. I don't have a brayer, but I just patted the ink pad all over the plate and ran it through my cuttlebug. I love the look it gave! It was my first time giving that technique a try. I had to turn the fillable frame image on its side, which I don't think is as pretty as the tag, but it was necessary for it to work on this card. I used some silver wired ribbon to break up the card a bit and that was all. I still like the tag better, but was glad I tried out a new technique. Thanks for taking a look.

I love them both! The soft blue with the sparkles is perfect for winter. And I really like the letterpress on the card. Beautiful job, Cathy!
