Bells and Boughs

Good Sunday morning to you all! It is another hot day in Southern California around 90 degrees again today. We are supposed to cool down tomorrow and continue dropping the rest of the week. Sure hope so, I am thankful for air conditioning but am getting tired of always having it on. Some cool fall temps would be great!

This is the first card from our August monthly card class. We did two Christmas cards because some had not been able to do the stack and wanted some each month until December in our regular class.
This card was done in Riding Hood Red 4 1/4 x 11. The Whisper White layer is 4 x 5 1/4 and I stamped it in Always Artichoke ink with the bough from the stamp set Bells & Boughs. I left enough room at the bottom to stamp my sentiment in Riding Hood Red ink. The scallop square is from the Scallop Square Duo die done in Riding Hood Red cardstock with the Big Shot(my favorite tool). If you don't have one you should think about it. For the month of September anyone who holds a workshop with me will get $10 off the Big Shot. The Whisper White square is 2 1/2" and the image is stamped in Basic Gray ink. I used Always Artichoke and Riding Hood Red to color the leaves and ribbon. The finishing touch is 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain ribbon tied with one knot in the center before applying to the card.

Thanks for stoppin' in and I'll see you soon.
