A Sweet Christmas

Hello Again!
It's Friday, and I have a treat for you today...two blog posts!
And, this post is a "sweet" one!

There's a new challenge over at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long beginning today, and you will love the theme...

"Anything Goes"

I'm guessing you'll all find this one easier than the sketch challenge that we had running last week.

We are welcoming back Meljen's Designs as our sponsor this week...

Meljen's Designs :: Digital Stamps by Melissa Jenkins

...and they are offering one lucky winner 4 uncolored digis of their choice!
They have such sweet images...it will be hard to choose!

For this challenge, I used the digi called "Sweet Candy Canes".

I found some candy cane striped glittered paper in my stash and decided to use it as the background to the card. I then came across a piece of candy patterned paper and decided that it fit the "sweet" theme of the creation.  I colored up the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and added some sequins to the image to give it some extra shine.  A doily made perfect sense to me as a layering element as it reminded me of packaging goodies and I often use doilies to make a lovely presentation plate during the holidays.  Lastly, I found a neat piece of patterned paper with different sentiments on it and decided to use it on the bottom of the card as the holiday wishes.  Add the three snowflakes with their button centres and you have a quick, but cute "sweet" greeting card to pass along to a friend or loved one at Christmas. 

I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs this week to see what you have created for this weeks challenge.  You'll be glad come the chaotic holiday season that you've taken the time to create a few cards when you're busy with the rest of the holiday preparations!

Until next time...
