Merry Christmas-PP314

September 25, 2016

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

This week the multi-talented Joanne is our lovely hostess this week.  Her sketch challenge is just fabulous!  I had so many ideas for this one, so I know this sketch will be used many times!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a white card base.  The next layer is a piece of patterned paper that I found in my stash and I cut it using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies by SugarPea Designs.  The red paper was on the back side of this piece of patterned paper.  The Avery Elle-Kitsch Stamp Set deer was stamped on Neenah Solar White paper and colored with Copic Markers.  The deer, bow and holly were cut using the matching dies.   Sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
