February Christmas Card Challenge

Yesterday I showed you my goof up card for this month's Christmas Card challenge sponsored by Tracy. My new take on this (minus the dp) was to use a layer of embossed card stock instead. Card base is (what else) Pacific Point! Layers are Kiwi Kiss and Soft Sky (I really dug into my stash of retired colors!). The image is from KAH-Wink-E-Dink, a company I just discovered and who you will see images from again very soon on this blog. Fun stuff! I punched the snowflakes with a MS snowflake punch and also punched the inside as well and let the color show through the cut outs. The bling is more of my little gems from the jewelry department at one of the "big box" stores whose name I cannot mention.

Image was colored with my KIN pencils and oms and I also used my markers as it is hard to get a true red with my pencils. I cut the image out using deckle scissors.

I'm off to party with my stampin' buds today. First brunch with some of my grandchildren though. Maybe I'll take my camera along and share some pix with you later. Grandma's are always looking for excuses to show off pictures of their grandchildren!
