Beauty of the Season Makes a Debut

Alas, this Beauty of the Season is not about me. Sigh. Instead, it’s about a gorgeous new holiday stamp.

Here’s my little birdie:

I just wanted to go with a very clean and simple design for this one, so I just stamped the image in black and used a teeny bit of red sparkly stuff on the berries. For a bit of flair I added a few sequins in gold. I also wanted to be a bit more creative with the inside of the card, so I cut and mounted the sentiment and stamped the smaller branch image in a couple of places.

I’m not really very good at random acts of, well, randomness, and I always struggle with how many and where to place the embellishments. Even after all these years of crafting! Some things just come naturally to some people, the rest of us are envious!
