Scentsational Christmas Card for Retro Sketch

Hi stamping buddies, Wow, I am getting blown away by the high winds here. It is literally "hold onto your wigs" weather. Cold, windy and snowy too so I could only think of Christmas tonight. I sure hope no trees get blown onto my house. That would really P me off before it gets sold but that would be the story of my life. LOL! I wanted to wait and post this tomorrow but the sketch closes tomorrow.  I will be busy tomorrow night when I get home anyway to start cutting up card stock for my party on Sunday. I am the Queen of Procrastination but I was tired when I got home tonight and wanted to lay down after checking my email. So, this will be my Friday post okay? TGIF then. LOL! Just pretend.

On my card I used Crumb Cake for the base and then layered a piece of Real Red and Whisper White. I textured the Whisper White with the Argyle EF and then stamped the Scentsational  Season images onto Whisper White and die cut them with the matching Holiday Collection Framelits. I tied the Baker's Twine around it and popped that up with dimensionals. Then I took some Gumball green Card Stock and punched it out Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and snailed that underneath. I stamped the Merry Christmas from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched that out with the Modern Label Punch. This was a very quick card to put together. I am humming It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas as I am posting this while hearing the wind howling.

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Scentsational Season, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Crumb Sake, Real Red, Whisper White
Inks: Gumball Green, Real Red, Soft Suede
Tools and Accessories: Big Shot, Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Holiday Collection Framelits, Modern Label Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Baker's Twine, Dimensionals. 
I hope you like my card tonight. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. 10/4 over and out! 
LOL! I have been wanting to say that all day. Okay I am in a real goofy mood tonight I guess. Hugs, Bev
