Lil Inker Designs Holly Jolly Tree


Would you look at that?!  No coloring...
I just noticed that as I saw my card on my computer screen, that's very unusual & I like it!

This is the first card I've made using this new die and stamp set from Lil Inkers.  I used scraps of some Basic Grey paper that was in the pile beside my cutter, it was a 12 X 12 sheet and the right color.  My layout is Operation Write Home's sketch challenge #96.  I haven't had my Stampin' Up! Word Window punch out for a long time.  I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with Christmas ornaments on it, three Dew Drops, Memento Coco ink and the cardstock colors are Nut Brown, Stampin' Up! Garden Green and Cream Linen.  What a fun sketch for this image/die!


I suppose I should add this sketch is from November 20, 2011.  I can't keep up with all the sketches and challenges that pique my interest, but I always enjoy the inspiration they bring.

This really is a cute card! I recognized the sketch right away - I made a card and never posted it because I didn't like how it turned out! LOL I like the word window tabs!
