It's time for another My Favorite Things weekly sketch challenge.  Here's my card for this week's sketch.  The base is SU Crumb Cake, next is a mat of SU Always Artichoke and the holly DSP is from Echo Park's Very Merry Christmas.  The red & music paper are from Authentique 's Festive pad, and they are matted with SU Crumb Cake.  The sweet MFT PI Angel image is stamped on Neenah Classic Crest White and colored with Copics.  I used a Sakura Clear glitter pen on her wings and halo.  I tried to get a picture where the sparkle showed up, but it didn't work out. It looks very pretty.  The Noel is from MFT LJD-Stitched Stockings set, and is stamped in SU Always Artichoke on SU Very Vanilla.  I added a red rhinestone and some little holly leaves from MFT Christmas Die-namics set.  I put the little circle embellishment on the opposite side as it didn't fit with the brads on the left side. The brads are from SU.

Magic of Christmas - Cheery Lynn Designs Challnge

I made this card for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge 56 this week which is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors (no red or green).  The photo does not do the card justice as there is a little shimmer to the DSP which is SU (retired). I used SU Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake cardstock.
The lacey borders are made with the beautiful Cheery Lynn's Anastasia border die.  I cut 2 strips and crossed them for the point where I added the Heartfelt Creations stamped poinsettia.  I stamped it in SU Soft Suede ink on SU Blushing Bride CS and cut them out by hand.  I inked the edges with Blushing Bride ink.  The tag panel is cut with Verve's  Sweet Scallop Tag die and the sentiment is from Verve's Peace On Earth set.  The ribbon is from my stash. The copper brad is from Michael's.
