PPA Preview and Christmas Card

Don't forget to check back tomorrow and find out how YOU can play along with Pals Paper Arts Challenge! We love to see what our viewers come up with based on our team inspiration. Upload your creations following our sketch or color challenge and you are playing along!

I needed a card FAST again and here is what I came up with. I liked the idea of stamping this tree from Evergreen in Marina Mist ink onto Whisper White card stock. The ideas just flowed from there. I dreamed of a blue shining star atop my tree, so I got my Marina Mist Stampin' Write marker out and used the brush end to "color" my Silver Glimmer Paper punched star.

I could not stop shining just yet, so I punched 1/2" circles from Silver Glimmer Paper and then layered on some Vintage buttons and added a large Basic Rhinestone to each one. I tied a a Marina Mist 1/8" taffeta ribbon around the base of my tree, then matted everything with Basic Gray and White and adhered it to my Marina Mist card. I added a sentiment from Fabulous Phrases and--Done! It only took about 20 minutes to design as I went along and complete this Christmas card.

I hope you enjoyed looking today and that you will leave a comment below. I really love to read them all!

Such cute tags Patti! I don't use that set much as they are so small, but they worked up so cute here.
