Claudia`s Post Christmas Challenge

Good Morning all. This is my first after Christmas Challenge. Claudia of Pretty Pressings has a sketch out for a challenge and this is my take on it.

I received some beautiful paper form Basic Grey and I had to use some. I love this collection. These DP are from the Mistletoe and Pears collection. Don`t you love the color. The glitter paper is from DCWV and it is just the perfect color. Not green and not blue and certainly not turquoise....almost a hunter`s green. Love the sparkle it gives to the card.

I used two Magnolia stamps and colored them with my Prismacolored Pencils and OMS. I am learning on the markers but I so love my pencils. I love blending and shading with the pencils.

I used a Turquoise Spica Pen to highlight as well as my Inkadinkado white gel pen. The spica pen certainly dresses up am image...they just sparkle.
I used the largest square nestibility to cut the sentiment section for the inside and used CB dies to make the corner trims. The Remember When stamp is from Inkadinkado. I love it....it starts a multitude of sentiments.

So, guess what we`re doing today....taking down some decorations. We normally don`t start until New Years Day but today it seemed time so....off I go to the land of `Where the He_ _ is the box for this stupid ornament!

Wish me luck...this is always a trial to our marriage. I hate doing it and know it has to be done. Sounds like fun eh! Talk later.
