Smiley from Good Tuesday morning!  Oh yeah, it’s Tuesday!  It’s Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker.  Make sure you stop by the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog for all the deets and for a few announcements. We have some exciting things happening later this week!  You can also find the links to all the Design Team Members – I know you don’t want to miss an opportunity for some blog candy.

I decided to step out of my comfort zone for my card today.  AND let me tell you . . .  This was not an easy card for me to make.  Actually, it was a challenge.  I’ve had some Twinkling H2Os buried in the cabinet for a few years now, and decided to pull them out, dust them off and use them.  That was the easy part.  Once I got the images colored, the layout was the hardest.  I tried to do a simple and elegant card . . . NO WAY!  Then I got a brainstorm to emboss a background with a CB embossing folder . . . well, that’s another story for another time!  It could be a good story or a bad story . . . I’ll let you know later.

Anyhoo, here’s my card.

RN Christmas Block

I stamped and embossed the main image three times and then painted them with the Twinkling H2Os.  I cut out the second and third images, so that I could layer each section over the other.  Here’s a close up of the detail.
