A Christmas Tree Sketch!

Welcome to the week! I can't believe it's Monday. I took the weekend off from blogging since it was my DS #2's birthday and DH & my wedding anniversary. So much to celebrate! But I'm back now with some inspiration for you from the {Little Paper Shop}. This week is actually a color challenge (see below) but I messed up when I made this card and forgot the color part. Don't know what happened there!

I used a sketch to make this card, Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #48 {MTSC48}. This one is for the current week, a new sketch will be up tomorrow. Here it is for reference:

My colors this week are Handsome Hunter, Summer Sun and Real Red. The CHALLENGE colors are Kraft, Real Red and Brown:

I started off by stamping the Christmas Tree from {Katie Christmas} in Handsome Hunter ink. I went over the whole tree with a clear Spica Glitter Pen, which added some shine and bled the water-based ink a little for a softer look. Stamped the star on top and colored with a yellow Spica Glitter Pen. Embossed the red and yellow layers with Cuttlebug folders, added ribbon and the Prima poinsettia and it was all set!

Be sure to visit the LPS store blog and the other DT members to see all the inspiration with these colors! AND, if you play along with our challenge this week you'll be entered to win LPS stamps!! Check out the details on the LPS store blog this morning - you have until Sunday night to enter on this week's post on the LPS store blog and the winner will be announced there next Monday morning. Happy stamping!

Last thing before I go, don't forget that there is a MAJOR sale going on at the {Little Paper Shop} until December 7th. Julia is putting all stamps in the store on sale, anywhere from10% to 70% off!!!! Seriously. You'll have to see it to believe it!
