My card entry for this weeks Sketch Challenge hosted by Korin Sutherland
With one more sunny day before the rains come (and their coming) tomorrow. I thought I'd create another card using Sweet n Sassy Stamps September Release, Magic of Christmas.
My color combo reminds me of the sparkle in the department stores we'll be seeing soon. Pinks, Red, Lime and Christmas Green's. Fresh, stylish colors accented with gold and glitter really POP!
I trimmed the card and each panel with my Krylon 18K Gold Leafing Pen (it's a nice way to give that extra wow when you're not matting the panel). Then I ran a strip of 1/2" Score Tape along the bottom of the larger panel and covered it with peridot glitter. Once it was dry I ran an 1/8" gold ribbon (with double bow) down the middle. The sentiment is stamped in gold. Three little gold flat pearl/balls and 1 little clear rhinestone in the middle of the star.
There's Christmas magic in the air - can you smell it?
Thank you for your visit.
