Hello my dear friends: I have another Christmas card to share with you, this time is for the Pals Paper Arts
Sketch Challenge #265. I know it's still early in the year but, the rush of Holiday card making is almost here so, this time, it wont catch me off guard. I've been really in a roll participating in a bunch of challenges, I think this has helped me a lot gaining confidence and getting better with my creativity, they push me just enough to get out there and show my cards to all of you, trying new styles and designs. So, here is the card I made, hope you like it.
This is a card made with 3 delightful images from Purple Onion Designs' Stacey Yacula
, you can see why I just can't stop smiling. Now, I did a bit of recycling for this card, the gold piece of paper at the top is from a perfume bottle my dear hubby got me last year, I saved all 4 sides and trimmed one of them to use on this card, it's really a beautiful design.
This images were stamped on Canson Canva water color paper with Stazon Jet Black Ink and colored with almost all of my SU write markers. The garland on the Christmas Tree and the star on top were painted with a gold gel pen and then, I added a bit of sparkle with some SU Dazzling Details. The sentiment is from the Power Poppy set POINSETTIA
and it's heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder, the presents have a little bit of shimmery gold and silver paint on the ribbons.
This is the sketch that inspired this card.
I hope you like this card, I want to thank you for stopping by my blog today, please leave me your comments and any questions you might have about this card, I will be happy to answer them.
Till next time, keep on stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
