Deck the Halls

Happy Sunday everyone!

I've been playing with some of my new CTMH sets as I am taking part in a charity event happening next weekend and wanted to be able to showcase some new stuff. This is the card we will be making at the event, which happens to be a "Stamping Pyjama party". We did one last year and had so much fun, we decided to do it again!

I used the Christmas tree from Heartfelt Christmas (C1378) and the sentiment from Holiday Trinkets (D1366). The colors are Deep perfect plum and Deep terrific teal. I used Spot on Backgrounds (D1280) to add a design to the strip of Plum in the background, it seemed to be just what it needed. I stamped the tree again on Light terrific teal and pop-dotted it to give it dimension. For the scallop, I used my new border punch purchased at my LSS (EK I think) and the photo corner punch is EK as well. I embellished with Bella bling and there you have it.

I apologize for the photography. I had a really hard time with this one because it blended right into the background, so I had to experiment a little.

Even though I haven't had time yet to try out the sketch Sparkle suggested for her Christmas Card Challenge this week, I'm going to link this one up since it is a Christmas card and I didn't get to play and link last week. Fingers crossed I'll have time to try out the sketch and post later in the week.

Have a great day!


p.s. I have a fun layout just waiting to be glued down, so I'm hoping to show you that tomorrow. I've been playing with more of my new CTMH stuff (FELT!) Can't wait to share....
