Bringing in the Tree - PSC90

Hi my friends. Looks like it has come to be Wednesday again!  It was so nice to have that 3-day weekend and it really makes it hard to go back to work.  Lucky it's a 4-day week so won't be much longer.  I am still trying to play catch up getting Christmas cards done, so when this week's challenge was an Anything Goes with Ribbon, Twine, or Seam Binding, I knew that it would be another Christmas card for me. Besides, I thought this was such a cute image.

Materials Used:
  • Robyn's Fetish - Bringing in the Tree
  • Sentiment - Lili of the Valley - Christmas Tags
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler and Confetti Cream (may be retired)
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Found Christmas collection and Christmas collection
  • Accessories - mini glitter Christmas tree brads; decorative scallop scissors; Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine; Memory Box Die - Frosty Border; Liquid Pearls - Pearl; glue and fine white glitter
  • Copic markers - B0000; C1, C3, C5; E31, E33, E35; R24, R37, R39; YG11, YG63, YG67, YG97; and 0 (Blender)
I wanted to give a close up of the sparkle tree brads up in the left corner.

 I used the Freshly Made Sketch #19 as the layout for my card.  I just turned it on it's side.

This week our fabulous sponsor is Robyn's Fetish.  Pop on over there and check it out!

She will be awarding one lucky winner 5 free digis from her store.

Now, we turn the time over to YOU!  Time to get inky and pull out all those fun stamps and papers and create something for the challenge.  Just remember to put the sentiment on the front of your card.  If you need some inspiration, hop on over to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you. Good luck and have fun!
