Christmas Card Challenges #7

Sunday, January 16, 2011

It's time for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  This week, Peggy has provided a great sketch which can be seen here.  Isn't Elf Oliver, from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, just the cutest?  All of his outfit along with his hat got lots of glitter with my spica glitter pens.  And that embossing folder.  {sigh} I know I've told you how much I love it before but I'll say it again.  I just love those big dots.

Are you feeling the itch to make a Christmas card and play along with us this week?  Remember that any Christmas/holiday card will do.  The other challenges, like the sketch for this week, are optional.  We just want you to have a great stash of Christmas cards for 2011 so you're not rushing at the last minute.

My card is also for the current challenge at BasicGrey Challenges, which is spots and dots.  I used my dotted patterned paper from the Jovial collection.

***Supplies***
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey Jovial
Stamps:  Sparkle Creations Elf Oliver, PTI Signature Christmas

Other:  Cuttlebug

Make sure to check out what the other designers have for you.  You won't be disappointed.  And then have a great day.

This is another wonderful card, my friend! Your coloring is fantastic, which reminds me of something. Thanks to you, I have the start of a Copic collection. Yesterday, I ordered a few more (a dozen)and a colorless blender. I cannot wait for them to get here!!
