My paper pretties pick...
Lorelie Kim- My Paper Adventures
Isn't this card just so festive and elegant. I just love how Lorelie layered the stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs to create that poinsettia, the way she highlighted words on the sentiment, and all the colors and textures. So much eye candy to look at! Sheer elegance!!

Here is this week's sketch. Again, we are having another theme this week. Our theme is "Winter Wonderland". Show us your wintry scenes.


This Week's Sketch....



My card using the sketch....

card recipe:
stamps: Inky Impressions- Angelica's Lantern
Paper: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, Pretty in Pink and Soft Sky
Accessories: sewing machine, K&Co. snowflakes, Inky drops, prisma color pencils, snowflake embossing folder


My Project for today's hop
Here it is on a Christmas tree.....

Here is the same ornament on a stand so you can see the details better....


This ornament is made using the same Angelica's lantern stamp from Inky Impressions. It is colored with prisma color pencils and embossed. Gold Baubles are added as well as fun fur and glittered. The silver layer is created using the Spellbinders Pendant die. The snowflake base is an ornament I purchased at Target.
