Christmas is in the Air

Yes, it is official, for me anyways. I am in full mode of making Christmas cards. Now I haven't started my own, yet, but I'm busy prepping for my Holiday card classes. I've gotten quite a few new Christmas stamps, so I'm getting them out and inking 'em up. Today's card is for the Limelight Challenge. Brandi gave us another wonderful sketch to work with. You know I love circles, so this was super fun for me! Here is what I came up with. I loved using my the new Basic Grey, Wassail dp. You can now get it over at Limelight, along with my favorite Unity stamps. This image is from Giggle Grove, it is my favorite and most used Unity stamp. You can now buy is as a single or in the full kit (stamp set, Unity calls them kits). Oh, and the buttons are a perfect match to the paper, since they are the coordinating buttons for the Wassail paper. I've done this tree many ways, but I have never used buttons on it before. I love how it turned out. I used three buttons and then added clear page pebbles to accent the other two. I'm usually not a vintage-style stamper, but with this paper and these buttons, this card sure has a nice vintage, shabby chic feel to it. What do you think? Okay, now it's your turn. Get your Christmas stamps out and come play along. Link your cards to Mandy's blog post, and don't forget to check out what the other DT members did with this sketch. There is a prize involved. make a card and one random participant will win the Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Magic Sticker Tablet. (if you post to SCS, be sure to use the following code so we can find your card,keyword LLPC007). Happy Thursday! Hugs,
