I have a card to share today.  It has been a really busy few weeks and finding time to craft is starting to feel like a luxury.  I realized a few weeks ago that I am terribly behind in my Christmas card stash for this time of year.   Today's card is just that.  A way for me to add to my collection for mailing in early December.  

My card today uses ODBD newly released Christmas Door set.  I colored the image with copics and added layers of colored glitter to create added dimension.  This is my new favorite thing to do.  I am trying to come up with quicker cards even though the bow is still a part of the look and will cost more to mail.  Today's card uses a kraft card stock base, but instead of layering for a background I added the MME Lost and Found Christmas paper directly to the base.  Sort of fools the eye a bit.  The other layers are smaller accent pieces as well as part of the focal image.  I finished with some lace, gold pearls, bow, and gold ornate button with sentiment tag.  I am playing along with this week's Shining the Light Challenge(ODBDSLC80) to make a Christmas card and use ODBD stamps.  I am also using colors from CR84FN40.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
