CSAYL Card Challenge

Each Friday there's a new challenge at PCP's group "Christmas Stamping All Year Long".. and I thoroughly enjoy my commitment to make a Christmas card or paper gift each week. It really helps keep the stress level at a minimum when the holidays roll around allowing me to concentrate on the other hundred things that have to get done.

This week our CSAYL hostess provided us with a sketch that looks like this...


and it was a fun sketch to work with...  Here's what I came up with...


and a close up so you can see the wire that holds the stars...

This snowman image is from Sassy Cheryl's collection. You might have seen me use it before as it's one of my favs and I have a real penchant for snowmen! I colored this with Copic markers (now that's a switch!). The wire is from my jewelry habit hobby and I simply wrapped it around a paint brush to coil and create some interest.

Enjoy your day... and be safe in all you do.. Thanks for stopping by.. see you tomorrow for Pink Saturday!
