Behold, the first Yule card of this year! Hah, yes, I've made my first Christmas card for this year, I know I'm starting late but there's just something about making Christmas cards that doesn't really appeal to me. It's always so difficult for me to start making them but now the first one is done and hopefully there'll be plenty more ;) This card was inspired by the Hero Arts' October Challenge, the theme (holiday cardmaking) and the sketch come from there. The stamp I used here is the winter stamp from the gorgeous Hero Arts' set Trees of the Season. I heat embossed it and the sentiment (which says 'Christmas peace') with brown embossing powder. The papers I used are by Graphic45 (I just love this Christmas Past paper collection!). As embellies there's some ribbon and a button.

And while we're on the subject of Hero Arts.... Have you noticed the Heroine badge that I now have on the right sidebar of my blog? I got that from the September challenge of A Blog Named Hero where my card was awarded a place in the Top 5! I am so surprised and honoured :) :)
