Joyeux Noel

Can you believe we're at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #20

I was actually not quite sure what I wanted to make with this card. It started out  with wanting to ink my new Nutcracker Sweet set. I just adore the christmas tree that Claire snuck in there. Isn't in adorable? The colors pink and white and touch of green also been on mind lately.

Joyeux Noel
Stamps: Nutcracker Sweet (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Paper: Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft (Papertrey Ink); Eskimo Kisses (Basic Grey); Scrap Pack - Pink (Recollections)
Ink: Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink)
Embellishments: Taylor's Tiny Twinkles - Red (Taylored Expressions); Gelly Roll - White, Glaze - Clear (Sakura); Rustic Cream Button Twine (Papertrey Ink)

Except the green never made it into the card ;) I stamped the image with white ink and wanted the white to be more prominent. A white gel pen came to the rescue. While tracing the lines, I thought some areas of the tree would look great with tad bit of glazing. So this tree saw loads of Sakura action! The pearls and wee little pink gem was perfect to finish the tree off.

After that I was a little stumped on how to finish the card. Pulled out some trusty card stock and pulled my BG Christmas pad out. And before you knew it - no green.

Halloween is coming up and  I have kind of skipped over making but a few Halloween cards. And I have yet to carve a pumpkin. What are you guys doing to celebrate? Did you make your own costume for you or your lil' munchkin(s)?
