Holiday Card


 Welcome to my second post today. Today I am sharing another Holiday Card,  Never too early to get started on some festive cards.  This one will be entered in a few challenges.
I began with an old stamp from Creative Vision set Let It Snow stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white CS and colored with Copics Markers YG 63, Yg99. Added a sentiment from Mark's Finest Paper with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.  Mounted the image on mat of green CS.  I followed a Challenge Sketch shown on the right. Added strips of Green and White Plaid from Pebbes' Welcome Christmas Pad. Added Stars of glitter paper cut with Sizzix die. Added some gold glitter glue to star on tree and decorated the tree with white ornament balls simply cut out with a hole punch.
Challenges:
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: Use green and white to create card.  I used gold as a neutral.
Clear It Out Challenge Blog: Theme- Follow their sketch. Stash-Anything
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Make your Mark
The Glory Of Christmas: Any Thing Goes for Card
Addicted to Stamps Challenge: Theme is Holiday
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra: Anything Goes for July

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
