Jolly Follies

Hey everybody and Happy Sunday!



Yesterday we had my husband's company picnic and didn't get home 'til late. This morning I went to the gym, stopped by Target to buy some more school pants for my daughter, came home and went STRAIGHT to my craft table to make something for the Fall-to Layout Challenge (love this challenge each week). Now we're just relaxing in front of the TV watching the race...ahhhh, feels good to have a lazy Sunday afternoon at home.

Anywhooo, I'm rambling. Onto my card. The main image is from my Penny Black Jolly Follies clear set and the sentiment is from my JustRite Christmas Joy set. The long deckled rectangle was sponged with Saffron and Rust ink, and it's up on foam tape. I added some Gold Stickles to highlight the bells, and glued down some red mini rhinestones on the holly with a small dot of Diamond Glaze. The DP is MME Merry Days of Christmas.
