I honestly have to say that I am ready for Chritmas music! I have started planning Christmas shopping a little earlier for me this year too! My hopes are to really enjoy the Christmas Season this year and appreciate the gift of our Savior! I think since I have been making cards so early this year that it has really put me in the Christmas spirit!
Here are a couple challenges I decided to join...Dynamic Duos #27 and the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge #40. (These are my MUST challenges! Just love them!!)
This was a fun little card to make! I decided that instead of adding just cardstock in each of the color sections I wanted to add texture too but still keeping with the sketch. I just opened a box of goodies today and the Distressed Dots Background stamp had arrived! I think you will be seeing much more of this stamp!! I wanted the tree to "match" the dotted background, but when I first stamped it, I did not have enough dots on the tree. I wanted them to look like ornaments. SO...I stamped a piece of Whisper White CS first with Gumball Green. I then used the Stamp-A-Majig and stamped the same stamp with Raspberry Ripple. I was so excited! I matched the paper but i was able to have the pattern tighter for this small tree. I then covered the dots with Crystal Effects. I have a lot of "dots" on this card but Iwas hoping that used the Stripped Impressions folder on the Raspberry ripple panel helped break things up just a bit.
Once again..Thanks for stopping by!!!!
