Merry Figgy & Goodies

Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey...
something that I picked up from Splitcoaststampers buy board...I've been hoarding it, not wanting to use it for any of my Holiday Gift Sale cards....LOL. I saw the CPS Sketch 94 and thought it would be perfect for the mix of patterns. I was actually inspired by Laura Williams' "Joy Together" but my card ended up taking a life of its own. I love when that happens but typically that equates to a HUGE messy work surface and yup, that's what happened last night.
I used Kitchen Sink Stamps Playful Christmas on the Top Note Die. Do you see the hint of glitter along the edge? The gorgeous velvet ric rac ribbon is ala Jody Morrow of Confessions of a Ribbon Addict. It turned out to be a pretty "busy" card, especially for me but, like I've been saying lately, I'm lovin' blue and red together.
I also wanted to share what I recently received from the most fabulous Julia Stainton of Belle Papier. I won one of her magnificent blog candy drawings. Her sense of style is so unbelievably gorgeous...sooo shabby chic and feminine...

  21. Hey Chicka,
    The black grossgrain with white stitching retails for $7/20 yards. I order full spools and get it for half that but we have to pay shipping....let me know if you want me to order it! :)

    hugs,
