Sugarplum Ornaments Trevor




I am really on a roll with challenges now! I managed to incorporate two with this card. Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge this week is to use buttons. I have also used the sketch challenge (#96) from Taylored Expressions. Including this card, I am now at a count of EIGHT for Christmas cards for 2010! I am determined to get them done early this year and at this rate (and with weekly encouragement from Sparkle's Challenge) I think I am well on my way! Woo hoo! (Thanks Sparkle!)
I am pretty happy with my photos this go around, except for the little shadow spot on the first photo, but at least my lighting was good. I'm really trying to work on that. Now I must try to remember what I used....I rec'd the image from Danderella the other day when she came to tutor me in copic coloring! CS colors are topiary and cranberry from CTMH. Patterned paper is Reminisce from my stash which I think is about 2 years old. Sentiments are CTMH & Hero Arts. Buttons from CTMH and several different colors of Stickles! (I couldn't resist putting stickles on those ornaments!)
I had so much fun with this one, I may just make one or two more for the Christmas stash! Oh yeah, we did get to see the torch come through - it was very exciting - a real vibe of excitement from the crowd, but no good photos to share - too many people in the way! Oh well, hope you all had a good Monday - as good as a Monday can be - it is my least favorite day of the week, glad it's almost done. :)
Cheers,
Shanna :)

  1. Love your colored image..it looks awesome. If you don't own them yet..the 'C' and 'W' Copics are awesome for outlining. I have several of both and love to go around my image with them. I use C1 C2 the most.
    How cool you got to see the torch!
