Limelight Sketch Challenge and Shimmerz Newz!

Happy Sunday! I can't believe the long holiday weekend is almost over. The time just flies! We had a good one here, got a lot done around the house but still had time for family and fun {and even some stamping!}. Sorry for the not-so-great photo, we are having a very overcast and snowy day here today so not a lot of luck taking good pictures. If you click it you'll get the larger version which should show a little more detail.

I made this card for the Limelight Papercratfs challenge for this weekend - it's a Six Chicks sketch challenge! Here's the sketch {LLPC009}:

You were also supposed to use some black products in honor of Black Friday. I DESPERATELY want some of the Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock, but I haven't gotten any yet {haven't done the Christmas shopping for myself yet, LOL!}. So I just used plain ole' black cardstock, black ink, and actually it's hard {very hard!} to see from this photo but the long skinny panel underneath is actually black cardstock that I did the Opalite Smoosh technique from Technique Junkies on using Green, Silver and Rose colored Opalite inks. That's where I pulled the color combo from, but unfortunately I ended up covering most of that panel up! It is really pretty and shimmery in real life though.

All of my stamps are from Prickley Pear. I just love this sentiment. Every time I see it it makes me giggle. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the holidays and we are making sure to have some of our family traditions passed down for our boys, etc., but it's still funny! After my DH saw this card, he proclaimed it to be the "anti-Christmas card". heehee. Well, he should know...

After I stamped the ornaments I painted them with Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz Blingz and Silver Bells Shimmerz. Did you know you can now buy Shimmerz directly from Shimmerz? Never a color out of stock! They are having a Grand Opening/Black Friday sale too - it's a heck of a deal. Check it out.

Supplies, etc.: Stamps from Prickley Pear. Palette Noir and New Canvas ink. Sage Shadow, Brushed Silver, GP 110# White, Basic Black and Rose Red cardstock. Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz Blingz and Silver Bells Shimmerz, silver cord {retired from SU}, dimensionals, Opalite reinkers for Opalite Smoosh background piece.

7 people made my day!:
