Be Merry



Happy World Card Making Day!



 I didn’t want this day to go by without making a card to celebrate a day and creative pursuit we love!  Power Poppy has a great sketch challenge today that we hope you’ll jump in and create with! 

Julie challenged us to create a holiday card, using sparkle and this sketch and this is what I came up with using the gorgeous Poinsettia set.  

I stamped it in Toffee Crunch Memento ink....not that you could tell by the time I coloured it all up, but I wanted something a little softer as an ink for the design.  I found an older pack of papers that would work with the non-traditional colour theme in these icy blues and purples.  

For my touches of sparkle I have a beautiful sparkly ribbon, and what you can’t see despite all my best attempts at photography tonight is all the lovely sparkle I added on the design with a Wink of Stella pen.  The whole design has subtle shimmer.  




Here’s the pretty sketch to play with....



We hope you can be merry with us :)  Be sure to check out the Power Poppy blog for all the details on how to enter the challenge with us and how you can win!  

Here’s some more WCMD Inspiration from the Bloom Brigade!

Woah.... this is a beauty Christine! Love the cool blues and purple tones! Coloring is stunning as usual and I love the vellum doily--such a fun texture to add to the mix!
