I won over at Raise the Bar a few weeks back and was asked to design a card for this week's challenge which was "trees". I pulled out some odd papers to use because I refuse to buy more Christmas papers and seriously need to make a dent in my paper collection. I also decided to use an older stamp set from last year. I used 2S4Y sketch this week and went to town creating this. I was a little unsure about how the card would turn out. The bright green cardstock was too harsh so I used my PTI distressing inks to tone it down. I cut some circles with my pinking shears and then layered for a dimensional effect.
My card is for the following challenges:
2S4Y: #67 "Sketch"
Artful Inkables: #34 "Punches" I used my circle punches
Challenge Up Your Life: "Christmas"
Paper Cutz: #70 "2 pattern papers"
Raise the Bar: #46 "Trees"
The Paper Players: #27 "Christmas"
Totally Stampalicious: "Anything Goes"
The 3rd box is from Jenna at Corgi Pants
I like these little Christmas stamps she included. The fabric is really sweet with wooden toy soldiers on it. She also included the resin star ornament.

That's it for now. Off to do some shopping. Ugh. Why can't I stay home and shop online like everyone else? Because I am total tactile person and need to touch the item and be sure it is of sound quality. :-) I know, I am an odd one. ;-)
