Christmas Horn

I've realized I have to get back in the mode to get the number of
 Christmas cards made that I set out to do at the beginning of the year.
I can't believe it's November and Christmas will be here before we know it.

So I have this one inspired by the sketch at
and the color combo from

The horn stamp is from DRS Designs.
I stamped it 3 times, once on cream colored card stock,
(the horn was colored with a gold gel pen)
then on green and red and paper pieced.
The frame was cut with a Paper Artist
Lacy Labels die from Hot Off the Press.
The cream card stock was embossed with a
Darice embossing folder.
The ribbon, sticker greeting and gems are from my stash.
