I guess I am really in the Christmas mood now that I did my first card. This one is for the color challenge on Paper Players (App10). These colors look so rich together, I really think I will use them a lot.

My base card is from Crumb Cake, then I layered a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Very Vanilla. I then took Early Expresso and cut 2 strips the width of the card and punched them with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Next I layered a strip of Deck the Halls DSP from the new Holiday mini on top of the those. Then I cut a piece of Early Expresso and cut a tag end on it and layered it on the DSP. My ornament is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Ornament Punch. I finished it off with a pearl from the Basic Pearls and a bow with the 1/8 inch Early Expresso ribbon. Isn't it "gor-ge-ous".
I also used the sketch challenge from over on Techno-Stamper (TSSC134) for this card. They went together very well, I think. Hope you like them too.

Thanks for stoppin in!

Have a Blessed Day!

  3. June, isn't it wonderful when you can get one card for two challenges. I think you did a fabulous job of incorporating both challenges! I love your DSP and the fact that you highlighted the single ornament. fabulous card.
