Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!

Here is my card for today's challenge at the There She Goes Blog, which is a color challenge of red, blue, green + neutrals, TSG31!!! SO fun!! For my sketch, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC46!!

For my card, I used the Good Cheer paper from October Afternoon, which has all the colors for today's color challenge in it!! I LOVE this paper and I promise...I will stop using it soon (you, after Christmas!!).

I used the BRAND spankin' new Holiday Tags from There She Goes for my card! I stamped the Christmas tree onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black twice and then cut it out and popped it up on foam tape. I colored it with Copic Markers and added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for the ornaments. I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the star on top! While the paper was in the Circle Nestabilities, I sponged some Cool Caribbean ink around the edges for a bit of pop. LOVE the look of that!!

All the layers were sewn with my sewing machine and a simple "Merry Christmas" sentiment, also from Holiday Tags, was stamped directly onto the patterned paper. Two Real Red bows finish off my card!!

You can check out this There She Goes Challenge right here!! There is plenty of time to play along, and one lucky participant will win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store! Woot!
