Merry Christmas

I am so excited! Today is December 1st! This is always a fast and furious month yet I love all of it. Today Flourishes is teaming up with Becky Fleck over at PageMaps with the new card sketches. Yea! Becky has the best sketches and super designs. Below is the sketch I worked with today.

 My creations is using Flourishes beautiful Naturally Merry Stamp set. Since the sketch had the fun design along the side I thought why not. I stamped the holly onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
My holly is colored using copic collections:



The Color Made Easy Poppy Collection was perfect for my base and center panel based that I die cut using Spellbinders Label One along with Spellbinders Grommet Tags for my sentiment. My ribbon is from the Color Made Easy Poppy collection as well with some white crochet lace underneath. I do love how this turned out, the holly alone is awesome. Of course if you saw Christines creation with the holly you will be purchasing this stamp set if you don't have it already. hee hee   Hope you enjoy all the new sketches over at PageMaps.
If you are looking for the Dirty Dozen Christmas Challenge for December I will have a post on Monday. I didn't have time to get it ready for today, sorry. The Challenge is White as Snow. All your creation is white with only the color coming from your colored image. Silver embelishments are good and you can even use the theme of snow for your creation if you would like. Please put keyword SCSCCDEC12 in your search so we can find your creations on SCS. Have a wonderful weekend!
