When you think of those three words, what comes to mind? When I think of those together I think CHRISTMAS!! I am having much fun putting together Christmas cards - especially since I rescued this set from the packed boxes! I just couldn't let it get packed away yet! So, when I saw the challenge over on the 365 card blog for today I got out the bells in this set since I hadn't used them quite yet. Then I went in search of a sketch - to make things a bit easier (I DO still have lot's of packing to do) and found a wonderful one over at 2 Sketches 4 You
As many of you know - I like clean and simple (cas) cards and this sketch just lends itself so well to that concept. I have colored the image with my Prismacolor Pencils without any sansodor. I just lightly colored and liked the way the colors worked. I used only the four colors - PC 1030; PC911 for the holly leaf and berries. I used PC950 Metallic Gold for the bells and couldn't decide what color to make the ribbon, and decided that PC949 Metallic Silver would be a nice touch. I used a bit of Gold Lame smooch for the dots on the bells and then sprayed the whole image with Gold Glow smooch. I had fun using one of my newest nestibilities and then matting with the circle scallop. I used the gold lame smooch around the edges of the outer circle. I love using these wonderful flowers from Wild Orchid Craft and finally was able to do a red flower spray. I have touched the edges of the blossoms with more of the gold lame smooch and added the vanilla ribbon as my final touch. I really like the way this card turned out and it really looks so much better in real life.
Thanks for stopping by my Paper Spa today - now I have to run off to the eye doctor and then back home to pack more boxes.
