Be Merry and Bright

Hello there!

Hope you enjoying your weekend.

Check out this weeks sketch at Waltzingmouse ...

 


I used the color combo from Dynamic Duos


Here is what I created...

I used 'Sewing Box Christmas' and 'Seasons of Love Tags' stamp sets from Waltzingmouse. All cardstock, buttons and twine are from Papertrey Ink. I used  black ink from Hero Arts. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

                                        








All pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye. I added some glitter glass from Melissa Frances. The pearls are from Recollections. I used a border punch from Martha Stewart. I used it for the side panels but also beneath the oval die ( Spellbinders). This is how....

                                 After punching the border, add slits to manipulate the paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Michelle
