Twisted Card #038 & Joy to the World!

Twisted Card Sketch #038 is up over at http://www.twistedsketches.com/! What a fun sketch, and the twist is "chipboard." For my interpretation, I decided to do a Christmas themed card since the big day is only 1 week away! Yikes! Are you ready? I know I'm not! It's like everything else with me, I simply never finish...I just run out of time! :)
As for the actual card, I used lots of fun glittery details. My chipboard incorporation is the use of Pink Paislee's Glitter Chipboard Alphas in Limeade and the scroll shaped "raw" chipboard piece at the bottom is from The Paper Studio. Since the base of my card is simply kraft cardstock, I thought it would be a good idea to keep the embellishment, raw in it's natural state. I think it tied the card together nicely. The other goodies I used on the card are as follows....My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road "Boy" Dapper Dots Paper, Creative Imaginations Art Wharehouse Epoxy Christmas Tree Sticker, Making Memories Vintage Findings Embossed Metallic Silver Alpas, CTMH Paper Tag & Love Letters Rub-ons, Baker's Twine, October Afternoon's Hometown Journaling Card & the lovely bird is a transparent shape from GCD's Melody Ross Homespun Chic line.

I have so much to do and so little time. If I get to post again before Christmas, that will be wonderful. If not, I wish each and every one of you a wonderfully joyous holiday. Merry Christmas and "Joy to the World!"

Amy I just love your mix of the kraft with the grey and glittery elements! This feels truly vintage to me!
I'm the same way every year too. Always run out of time. Throwing in a week of vacation doesn't help much! You will be amazed at how Disney has grown since your last visit. It's an amazing place. Let me know if you plan a trip and have any questions - we go every year.
I hope you have a great holiday!!
