Holly Jolly Christmas Card Challenge

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Sarah of Mallow's Crafty Bits, a very talented crafter who serves on a ton of design teams, and welcome also to Corgidusty, who are joining us as new followers this week. I like to put a link onto new followers blogs, so everyone can pay a visit but sometimes Blogger doesn't cooperate and give the link details. That has happened a few times lately so if anyone knows the answer to this I'd be grateful to hear it, and Corgidusty if you could let me know your blog address if you have one, I'd love to visit.

Today is time for another challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and this time we are asking you to put 3 or more layers on a card. Our sponsor this time is 

finally the stamps you've been looking for rubber stamp company Rubber Stamps, Gold Leaf, Foil, and Glass Beads for Stampin, Scrapbooks, Card Making, and Paper Crafts

and I used their digi stamp 10803 Sleigh with Presents for my card

I kept this very simple and just resized the image before  colouring it with Copics. I added a trim of  glitter, and glossy accents on the tree baubles, and then matted the layers up before stamping the sentiment. I used a glue pen to dot some glitter spots around the image and called it done. I chose my favourite scarlet jewel card, paper and ink because it screams Christmas to me, and decided to cut asymetrical panels and put them on the pretty shaped card to add a little contrast.

Why not hop over the the Holly Jolly blog to see what my Design Teamies have to show you, and join in with us this week.

I'd like to enter this into
