Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian blog visitors, family and friends. I hope you have been enjoying your long weekend. Our weather has been stunning, I don't recall having such a beautiful start to fall for a long time. I was over in Abbotsford celebrating World cardmaking day with my sister and it was a stunning 26 degrees, I think I touched up my summer tan :) . Anyhoo...
It is time for a new Merry Monday challenge, again Lesley has outdone herself with this fabulous sketch.
I have to admit I enjoyed making this card, it was so fun. The tree was part of a 12 x 12 DP sheet that I could not resist chopping up :) don't worry, I used all the scraps for other parts of the card.
I added some texture to panel and tree, I used my Slice to cut out the star. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment then added some light coloured snowflakes on the background. I finished by adding some gold twine and gold and red pearls to the tree.
Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Fancy Pants, Inspired by Stamping - Christmas Greetings, Verve-Bright Spirits, Recollections pearls, misc twine, embossing folder.
Stop by Always Playing with Paper to see what Lesley and the Merry Makers have created. We would love for you to play along with us for Merry Monday this week.
I don't have to cook for anyone today and I get the day to myself... cardmaking anyone :).
