Be Good - Avery Elle card

Hi again!
This is my second post today, if you're here looking for some cookies, go to my Lawn Fawn Milk & Cookies post clicking here or just scrolling down. Thanks!! :)

It's the turn of Joy to the World to be featured. This stamp set is one of my favorites from the last Avery Elle release, I love the fonts on the world balls and the different sentiments and possibilities. And it has coordinating dies too!

When I see the "Santa is coming to Town" ball and the Santa and reindeers ornament for the world's map my head started to work and when I realized that I could blend the ornament to have a Santa flying on a sky... Well, the whole card came into my mind.

Coming to Town

I have to tell that I'm pretty proud of this one because I made it at 2am lol and I was thinking I couldn't make anything good. That's what inspiration works, I guess!! Sometimes I have several days and I can't make anything haha

So I heat embossed the sentiment as it looks like the moon and blended Santa and reindeers to travel trough the sky. The background is made with Distress inks and some splashed water and then I just layered some city skylines on the bottom.

I hope you like it!! I'm sure I'll use this set again in many other ways!! :)
Thanks for your visit, have an amazing day!!

This is unbelieveable!! Its the sort of card that if someone sent it to me, I would probably frame or keep somewhere on show for years. Its spectacular. The night sky is blended so beautifully, love the curved Santa and sleigh and the black die-cut skyline is genius. I'm always doubting myself too and then something like this comes along to give you the boost you need!!!
