CCMC279 & PP174

Hi Everyone,

I decided to take a break from making Christmas cards and create something different.  I found the layout for my card over at Create with Connie and Mary Challenge.  Love the layers on this sketch, so I'll be using this one again.  I'm also incorporating the Evergreen Theme from The Paper Players Challenge.

My card:




For my card, I chose one of my favorite stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree.  I began with Whisper White, followed with layers of Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze card stock.  The patterned papers are from a retired DSP from SU! called Parisian Breeze - another favorite.  I took a piece of Whisper White and lightly sponged the background with Baja Breeze on top and Chocolate Chip on the bottom.  I then stamped the trees with more Chocolate Chip ink.  I wanted to create a winter-like effect.  The sentiment is from SU! Wetlands, and was stamped with Early Espresso ink.

I am also linking up to Seize the Birthday.

Thanks for taking a peek,
