Postcard from Home

Hello everyone, I love Christmas scenes. I can't stop buying them even though I have tons. They just give me such a warm, cozy feeling. Here's my latest addition from Flourishes, 'Vintage Postcard'. 

I wanted to have a soft snowflake pattern in the background of the image, so I stamped it on some Basic Grey paper that had such a pattern already. I think it's from an old collection 'Wassail'. I then went back and colored it with Copics



The frame was stamped separately in gold EP, then cut out as a frame. I love this card, and I'm keeping it for someone special! 


Now here's my latest car 'dangle' creation for Halloween:



I used Topaz, Purple and a deep Mocha beads for this one instead of the traditional orange and black, and antiqued brass findings for a more vintage feel.
The pumpkin was cannibalized from a necklace I bought on Etsy last year. 


Thanks for dropping by!
