Card Making Challenge at Joans

Good Evening Ladies,
Well I had a busy day today. I went to the stamp show in Fort Wayne and I went to see the Lion King 3-D tonight. Plus I made cards before I left this morning.
Joan is having a contest for cards made on world card making day...that's today...here is the link...

Here is one of the cards I made today...
 This card was fun to make and has a twist to it. I used three layers of dsp. The top one being a Tim Holtz paper from the season stack. The Merry Christmas is stamped in archival coffee ink. I stamped the La Blanche santa stamp on La Blanche paper and then ran it through the scallop spellbinder die. I colorized the santa with tim holtz distressed ink and ranger pen nibs. Here is the twist....I took an old bangle bracelet that my dad got at an auction and placed it on the santa. I then filled it with crystal lacquer and let it dry. The bracelet became adhered to the card and looks like a glass lens. So another green card.
close up of the bracelet with the crystal lacquer.
It is late so I will post the other card I made tomorrow.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
