Nettie goes International!

Feliz Navidad! Yes, there is a story behind this card! My brother is forever sending us Spanish cards for Christmas even though no family members are Spanish. I thought it would be cute to give him a dose of his own medicine back this year and this card certainly would do the trick. Is this not the perfect image from SparkleNSprinkle for this card?!
Little did I know his Christmas cards would become and inspiration for me and help me create a beauty for the design team of SparkleNSprinkle. Thanks BRO!

To create this fun card I first created wording using Lasting Impressions software and M1 template. I layered it on some olive and red DCWV cs that I cut and embossed using my new scalloped Nestibilites from Spellbinders. I colored the image using vivid olive, red and gold Copic Markers. After attaching the strips of ribbon to the card front I mounted all to the front of some Lasting Impressions cs to finish it up.

Thanks for dropping by enjoy today's holiday share.
