MLCCB #47 DT project for 1 November 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart is excited to share this mixed medium embellished Christmas card! This card is being showcased for Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog that launches today, November 1. The #47 competition ends on December 15. 

MLCCB offers Anything Christmas Goes type themed challenges for 6 week sessions 6 times per year. I decided to feature most of the supplies from Cozy Christmas collection by Fancy Pants Designs. 

"Deerly Beloved"=

Take a look closely...zoom/enlarge by clicking on the photo...because there is some gold netting/tulle covering 80% of the card!!! 

The 3 patterned cardstocks, deer die-cut, and the wood 'button' with yellow amber resin are from the Cozy Christmas collection. 

It follows a very old sketch created by Yolanda K=

    1. HA!!! I had avoided using it when I first got the paper pad and die-cut ephemera package (Cozy Christmas from Fancy Pants Designs) but then I came across an old sketch and just thought I'd use it on a slant. Thanks for being a faithful blog follower/commenter!!!
