Just Play

Good Morning Everyone! 
Another weekend is here; can someone tell me where the time is going?!  I have good intentions of being very productive today, but I had to sneak in some crafting first.  We will see if I can stay away from the therapy- I mean ink pads- for a while!

I thoroughly enjoyed making a card just for the FUN of it, no strings attached!  I got inspiration from several places today and will be entering the card in these challenges-
Seize the Sketch-

 Colors by Tis' The Season-   

And Inspiration from Inspired By-

I embossed the evergreen tree from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas Silhouettes Stamp Set, using Frantage gold embossing powder from Stampendous; I colored pearls with a red Copic and shirred a piece of gingham ribbon to embellish.  I was also thrilled that for the first time, I used WASHI tape on my card!  (Tee hee!)  I have always been flummuxed as to how to use this crafting supply, but today, although it is not the most creative use, I DID use it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today- off to do some yardwork!
