"Sentimental" Christmas Card

The prompt at Merry Monday this week was Sentiments, so I decided to see what I could do with this sentiment collage from Inkadinkado. I have used this before, but I definitely feel it is a bit hard to use since it uses up so much of my card with just the sentiment - and I really like using image stamps too.  I also wanted to combine this with a challenge to do a one-layer card.

(Click on images for better detail.)

Although this card is full of stamping, I did try to leave some open space in the frame, to make it less busy.  I added stickles to the snowflakes in the sentiment.



Supplies:  Inkadinkado Sentiment (60-00862), Versafine Onyx Black ink, Rubber Stamp Tapestry Holiday Stocking peg stamp set, Avery Elle Ink Sea Glass, Cherry, Strawberry, Celery, Stickles

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

I would love to participate in the following challenge:
