Enjoy the Magic

Invitation to create
I do love the Christmas season including making & sending cards. I know you're all busy, so I'll keep this short. I recently received the wonderful leaves dies from my win at 4EnScrap. I thought it'd be fun to use them for the next Invitation to Create: use 5 colors other than black & white. Here are my inks: Distress frayed burlap & bundled sage (outline of leaves), Delicata Golden Glitz (leaves), Distress spun sugar & fired brick (die cut snowflakes), Versafine Vintage Sepia (sentiment), Distress antique linen (music background).  
The edges are sponged with some of these as well. I used Penny Black stamps music background, 2025M & yuletide greetings, 30-192. I'm also entering Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for stopping by.
