First Christmas card!

First off, a fun toot!
 
A card I created with some Paper Smooches stamps is featured in this newsletter. Hop on over to get a peek.
 
Next up,
I wanted to use the retro sketch so this card was created. 
 It was fun to give it a Christmas theme. 
 The colors in the first picture are a little more accurate, it is sometimes hard to show the colors as they actually are.  The bigger circle is a Hero Arts stamp and the smaller one is a Paper Smooches stamp. The snowflake is Hero Arts.
 Here is the retro sketch.
 This card was created to go along with a Colour Q color combination but I was too late to submit it to that challenge. 
 I used a super fun new stamp from Stampin' Up with it's matching die shape. I love this tag shape.  The background is created with a stencil and some Stephanie Barnard Clearsnap spray inks.

Here is the Colour Q combo.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
