CCCMC326 and PPA225


Happy Friday, peeps!  A quick card today, as I will be traveling tonight to meet my good friend and fellow Paper Player Sandy!  Woohoo!  Can’t wait!  Meanwhile, I crafted a quick card using the Create with Connie & Mary colors:


and the Pals Paper Arts sketch


to made another Christmas card for my collection!  Here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Festival of Trees Holiday Cheer Christmas Stampin UP

I used some Flowerpot and Backgrounds DSP, then heat-embossed an image from Festival of Trees in silver embossing powder using Silver encore ink, then punching it out:


The sentiment was created the same way, using the Project Life Holiday Cheer set.  I topped off my tree with a little blue bird:


I really like these colors together!  Thanks for visiting!  I’ll see you Sunday with a new Paper Players challenge!  Have a great weekend!
