This month I have created 2 cards.  I feel like I have gone out of my comfort zone because of the busyness of the background and the colors.

On the card below I started with white card stock and used Text & Texture:  Bokeh in Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz ink using my Misti. The trees are from Floral Fantasy and stamped in Vintage Jadiete and covered with glitter. The sentiment is from Text & Texture: Bokeh and is embossed on the Banner Style Die.  The rest of the sentiment is from Holiday Thanks using versafine in black.  To top off the trees I die cut them out using Love Lives Here die in gold metallic paper.

This next card I started out using harvest gold paper and stamping with harvest gold and summer sunrise inks with the Text &Texture: Bokeh.  Besides the color change in inks I used silver metallic paper for the stars.  Do you have a favorite?

Enjoy the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop!
