Wednesday's Christmas Card

Today my card is based on the monthly sketch at Happy Little Stampers.  I recently discovered this challenge site and I am enjoying participating in their different challenges.

Here is the sketch.

I love Penny Black stickers (well I also love her stamps but I digress) and recently picked up a new sheet (I do have several old sheets that have not been used yet - but I digress again).  I try to always pick up coordinating paper at the same time so it is easy to start creating.  I first apply the sticker to cardstock to give it stability.  This sticker had some parts that stuck out so my fussy cutting had to be a little more detailed.  I love the pretty colors used in this sticker set.

The background paper has the snowflakes on it.  The sticker image and sentiment are pop dotted on the front of the card.  I added some enamel dots in the corner since I had a brown that matched perfectly - how often does that happen.  The pine boughs have a coating of glitter on them from my Wink of Stella pen.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I have four more stickers to make cards out of so hopefully I will keep working on them.

Have a good day.  More leaf raking today when the sun starts shining and mouse update - I have caught him or her.  I will set another trap tonight just to make sure there are no more relatives hanging out her in the crafting basement.
