CHRISTMAS IN JULY!
Several challenges this week with a Christmas theme, I think everyone is trying to get a jump on getting their Christmas cards. Probably not a bad idea. I'm always at the last minute getting them done, mostly because I can't make up my feeble mind on the design I want to do. [heavy sigh]
This card is all SU! materials except for gold thread holding the earth 'ornament'. I used crystal lacquer on the earth. Now I probably shouldn't be sharing this with you - but - the lacquer made a perfect dome on the little earth, until...I touch it with my thumb! You see, I really thought it was dry. So I turned it over and 'smoothed' it on my craft mat. Ahhh, it looks OK, but probably wouldn't work well in snail mail!
I am entering this in some Christmas challenges and some, well, not so Christmas challenges!
