Country Christmas Wishes


 Morning.
 Meet today's card.
 I really like 'scene' Christmas cards that remind us all of being home for the holiday.  I also love this stamp that I have owned for many years by Serendipity and I like to try and use it on a card every year.

I began by stamping the image with Memento black ink.  I coloured the image using Copic markers then cut it down so it would fit inside the scored border area.  I added some red paper to the back of the image and the card front border to help make it all pop.
The sentiment is a old one from Stampin Up.



 Adding my card to these challenges:


Alphabet Challenge- "U" USE SOMETHING RED

CRAFT Challenge- CHRISTMAS

Supplies:  stamps- Serendipity, SU/ ink- Memento/ Copic markers/ ScorPal/ pop dots
