My first Christmas card this year!!!!

Happy Saturday to you all!

I've finally made my first Xmas card this year.  It's a CAS styled card and it's ok for the start... to see if I finally get the mood for Xmas... 'cause every time I start, my project evolves to something else... LOL!

So, I'm entering this one to the C4C current challenge which is about using a bow in your project.  Label is C4C164.  I've been thinking for a while on using a little felt bow in a project.  I actually had other ideas in mind... more towards birthday banner in a card... which I probably will put in practice in future projects... but when I started to make the card, the idea evolved and ended up making a Christmas card.

Well... sometimes it's the mood, or whatever is called in our minds that set the  path of creativity.  But as I mentioned,  I needed to start making some Xmas cards anyway...

I also used a winged friend and I will share this card with the Outlawz CAS challenge group.

The bow was made cutting a 1"x 1 3/4" rectangle, sewing the center and tying with a felt strip.  I thought of also using a button in the center but went with a more delicate touch with the strip.

The stamp is from The Angel Company.  It's a stamp I've had for a while.

Patterned paper is from DCWV (It's Cafe Mediterranean collection... nothing to do with Christmas... that's why I used it for this card... LOL).

Hope you liked my card... and now I can finally say I made a Christmas card this year.  :)
