Blue Christmas ornament

Every year I try and make a card that is a blue Christmas card that may be a bit more of a personal card. This is the one this year that is that card. It might seem simple, but I see so many little things that feel that they make my heart happy in this simple card that it is my happy card this year.

Wow, did this card take a lot of work! I am not sure that I am all that happy with it, but there was definitely a point of no return when I realized how many hours had been spent already. I don’t hate it, I just don’t love it, and I wanted to love it a lot more after spending so much time working on it. Why does it work that way?

It took me awhile to figure out how to make this card and I didn’t make the deadline to actually submit this card to the challenge that the sketch the card is based on came from.  I totally forgot that I had these letter stamps that were given to me by a wonderful friend when I was first starting out.  I have no idea what company made them because I didn’t realize that I would need that info later on so I didn’t save it.
