It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year--PP369

November 5, 2017  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a festive theme challenge for all of us!  Holiday Pines---oh so many ideas on this one!  Have fun and hope you will play along with us!

I bought this set a few years ago and never used it, so this was the perfect challenge to pull it out.  I stamped the frame using Rubbernecker's Free Hand Border in Memento ink. I stamped the Rubbernecker's Christmas Branch set in black and then re-stamped the pine boughs in green.  The Misti came in handy for re-stamping.  I then masked off the ornaments and stamped them in red and purple. The sentiment is stamped in black ink.  Glossy Accents were added to the ornament for shine.  A few sequins were added to complete my card.
