Merry & Bright

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Wow, I realized I have only made three Christmas cards so far this year...I need to step it up!  The CAS Christmas Card Challenge had a color combo that I love (they're have a birthday party too...check it out), so I decided to combine it with the Jingle Belles sketch and the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge of Anything Goes:




I did originally color in an older SU angel stamp but changed my mind and went to a retired Elzybell image that I have always loved!  Stamped her on some watercolor with Stazon ink and went to work:


I diecut panels of some retired SU DSP with the Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered them to a Crumb Cake card base, then added my little image; she was watercolored with Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler inks.  There is Wink of Stella on the snow but sadly, you can't see it in the photo.  The snowflakes and embossed white sentiments are both from some retired Paper Pumpkin kits:


Another Paper Pumpkin sentiment and snowflake decorated the inside!  It was nice to add another card to my stash!


Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!
