Beccy's Place Day #6

This is a quickie post while I wait for Joyce to arrive.  We are headed to Edison, NJ for a Stamp, Scrap Art Tour Show.  Look us up at the Close to My Heart booth if you are in the neighborhood.
Before I leave, here is my card for Day # 6 of the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Place.  Today's challenge is to create a holiday card using masking.  

I'm not familiar with the masking fluid that Beccy used in her excellent tutorial.  I'll be looking for some at the show today. 
 Here's how I did it. First I stamped the center ornament on white cs.  Then I stamped another ornament on a piece of thin scrap paper and cut it out.  I laid it over the stamped ornament on the cs and stamped 2 more ornaments, one on either side.  Originally, I was just going to go for a 1 layer CAS card, but wasn't happy with it.  Then I decided to cut out the row of ornaments and adhere them to the embossed dp and  add another layer of green dp under that.  So much for a 1 layer card!  Once I had everything glued in place and added the sentiment and sparkles, the whole card got a good spritz of sparkle spray mist.

It just so happens that today is my birthday.  I want to show you the doodad I made for my purple hat that I wore to the Royal Scarlett Flock's Red Hat monthly luncheon this past Wednesday.  Normally we wear red hats, but if it is your birth month a purple hat is worn.  I'm new to Red Hatting and not a big fan of hats.  I do, however, wear  baseball hats to my grandsons' games.  Several months ago I came across this purple Nike baseball hat on clearance.  All it needed was a doodad to cover up the Nike swish logo.  Thank heavens for my Craft-Dee-Bowz Maker!

This is my entry in the November Craft-Dee-Bows Anything Goes Challenge.
