Good morning and thanks for stopping by. Today I have a card with an adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil. He's called Sticky and you can find him here. The challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog is "Any Holiday or Celebration". I chose Christmas so I could use this cutie :)
I used my Prismacolor pencils to color him. I love these pencils, I just need more practice.... I added MS tinsel glitter to his hat and pom-poms, gold Stickles to his jingle bell, clear Stickles around the image and Glossy Affects to the candy cane.
I added some pearls to the edge of the image. My little bouquet embellishment includes some vintage seem binding (it was in my stash and the cardboard it was wrapped around was yellowed.... vintage!), a pin I decorated with beads from my (daughter's) stash, a brown cherry blossom from Wild Orchid, 3 small jingle bells from my stash and some great off white sparkly, fuzzy, berry things I bought at Hobby Lobby.
Here's the whole card. The paper is from a great stack by MME called Oh Christmas Tree. The papers are so pretty and a little vintage-y. I embossed the green panel with a Sizzix embossing folder called "Evergreen". That's my take on the challenge at Tip Top Tuesday where they want you to make your own background paper. Maybe it's a little far fetched, I don't know, but I was drawing a blank. I added more gold Stickles around the sentiment panel that I stamped with a great stamp from Inkadinkado in the Christmas Silhouettes Collection. The pearls and vintage lace are from my stash.
The inside is pretty simple. I used another stamp from the same collection to embellish the writing panel.
And here's the back. I added a piece of ribbon behind my custom stamp.
