Papertake + Stamp Something + Colour Create = Christmas

What do you get when you take the sketch from Papertake Weekly, the color challenge of Ruby, Gold and Cream from Colour Create Challenge and the Stamp Something Challenge to use an animal? A Christmas card, of course! I think it was the color challenge which really drove me towards Christmas. I must admit I haven't had any Christmas stamps out before now. (Still not ready to admit that summer is almost over and Christmas will be here in no time.

I stamped Impression Obsession's "Christmas Tree Mouse" in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (R59, G21, G24, E00, E02, D37, E29, W1). The DP is from a Christmas paper pack I got from Hobby Lobby and the gold CS is from stash. I used the EK Success "Scalloped Scallop" border punch and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The flowers are Prima (the largest was white which I colored with R59) and the gem is Hero Arts (also colored with R59). Lastly, I added a touch of "Polar White" Flower Soft to fluff up his hat and to make snow.

Thanks for stopping by. Comments are always appreciated.

Cheers, Judi
