Quick Quick Xmas

Hello.  Welcome.  I sometimes play over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge and this week the challenge is to make a card in 20 minutes or less.  Some of you may have gathered that I usually take time with my projects.  Lots of time.  So this kind of appealed as an extra kick out of the comfort zone.  So here's my take

I based my card on YNS Sketch.  I started with a pre-embossed card from DCWV and inked the edges with VersaMagic Ocean Depth and Night Sky.  I stamped Hero Arts Stunning Snowflakes on a piece of blue card, embossed with white and cut into squares.  The edges were inked as the card base.  I die cut Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree and highlighted with irridescent glitter glue.  I stamped a piece of paper tape three times with the sentiment and cut some widgets using Cheery Lynn BAF#1 embellishments from blue glitter card.  Tah dah.  Under 20 minutes.  Quite like this.  The sensible amongst us would now knock out a few of these beauties.  I shall probably go and work on my art journal.  Or maybe my playing cards.  Or the witch sitting patiently on the pumpkin.  Or the Elton owl.....   Gosh, UFO's all over the place
