House of Cards - December Blog Hop

Whoa - how did it get to be December already. Wasn't it just summer? Yikes - I have so much to do before Christmas. This is CRA-ZEE!

The challenge this month at House of Cards is this photo of a decorated Christmas tree. We'd  love for you to show us how you're inspired by this beautiful Christmas tree.

We have prizes - thanks to our generous sponsors

Prize: Any three products of your choice!

Prize: $10 gift card!

Prize: $10 gift card!

Prize: Choice of one digi stamp set!

Here's my card

I started with the Stitched Season's Greetings Digital Stamp Set from MHK Desings, which is one of our blog hop sponsors. I was inspired by the shimmer and sparkle of the Christmas ornaments and the red and silver colours on the photo. I printed the sprig of holly onto 100 lb cardstock. I added the colour and shimmer using Gansai Tambi Pearl Colors watercolours and a water brush. 

I printed the sentiment onto cardstock and used a silver pen for additional shimmer. The sentiment banner and card panel were matted with silver cardstock. 

For the blog hop, you should have arrived from Shirley. Next stop on the blog hop is Susan. For the entire blog hop list, check the House of Cards blog.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
