C4C1 Merry Christmas, ODBD - Triple Challenge card!!!

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

There is a new Challenge Blog in town and a lot of my blogging and stampin' friends are on this Team - some very familiar faces.......check these talented ladies out right HERE!!!!

The first Challenge this month is a Sketch. I combined this card with the VLVSep02 - creating a card that is smaller than the regular size.

This creation measures 4" x 3 1/2''.





















I used the new Icicle Rub-On that is available in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.

The DP is from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Collection. I decorated the rest of the card with some Red Satin Ribbon and my fav Silver Pearls.

I also decided to decorate the inside of this little card......











This time I used one of the Merry & Bright Rub-On sentiments. It also can be found in the new Mini Catalog. I added a stripe of the leftover Specialty Paper - voila - the inside is done!!!

This card was created the other day for the SC234 - Crushed,Bermuda and Mango, SC244 and the WT234 - *Sand it*. I haven't played the WT in forever...so this was really fun to add this technique to my card!!!

I didn't have *sand paper*, but I took a big *nail file* and sanded over the swirled embossing. Unfortunately the photo didn't show the result that great :( , but it really looks cool - I like it!!!
