Michelle Perkett Studio Twinkle

Welcome to our Christmas Card Blog Hop! 
If you've come from visiting Debbie at Two Ladybugs From China, you're in the right place. If not and you'd like to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning at  Our blog hop is intended to help you get into the Christmas Spirit.... If you haven’t already started your Christmas cards, hopefully this will inspire you to come up with an idea... and maybe you can win some blog candy or get ideas for great Christmas gifts (whether they’re on your list or for someone else!).  So if you have a little computer time, come join us for some fun!
For my Christmas card today I C. A.S.E.d Joanne, The Inky Ocean Gazer because I love her style, she makes beautiful cards, the sketch, the texture and I'm just a fan of hers! 
The cute little snowman is by Michelle Perkett Studio called Twinkle and is a freebie at Crafters Digital Art Center for the members of her group there.    Twinkle is colored with Copic markers B21, B24, B28, R22, R24, Y32, Y35, C6, C3, G0000.  I trimmed around him with my paper cutter as close as possible, rounded the corners and matted each layer with Basic Black.  The white card stock is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder, the next panel is Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder.  I also used two dies from My Favorite Things Stamps for the snowflakes and extra large ric rac in Stampin' Up! Brocade Blue.   I added a white half pearl to the smaller snowflake and the sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink acrylic stamp set. 

I hope you are enjoying your long holiday weekend and our blog hop, your next stop is the fabulous Joanne at Sleepy In Seattle Stamps!

Please don't forget you still have time to play along in the Michelle Perkett Studio Happy Holiday's challenge too!  All you need to play is a Michelle Perkett Studio digital image, if you don't have one you can visit Michelle's  Etsy Shop.
