With Love at Christmas



Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well!  I wanted to pop in with a card I made for a sketch challenge this week over at Addicted to Rubber Stamps Challenge.  I used this month's new release at Our Daily Bread designs, O Christmas Tree.  I stamped the image with Memento and colored with Copics, then added Liquid Applique and while still wet, glitter.  I used a base of Mark's Finest Papers and the designer paper K&Co.  I also used some shiny red mirrored paper from my stash for a mat and for the flourish, which is cut with Spellbinders Fanciful Holiday Die set.  The image is cut with Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large.  I added a little bow made with May Arts ribbon, and some red pearls.

 I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - #104 Sentiment on front of card, Divas by Design -  #55 Texture, Just Keep on Creating -  Christmas,  Penny's Paper-Crafty - #96 Die Cuts/Punches, Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer/sparkle,  Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge (Must be Christmas) -Glitter & Bling, Through The Craft Room Door  - Alway's Anything Goes!,

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I am on the run for the next week or so, but I will have a few things to share so I hope you'll stop back in!

Blessings,
