PPA12 Make Merry!

TGIF Peeps!!

Today's card is made with the sketch on the Pals Paper Arts Blog. this is a great sketch, really fun and a great way to highlight some DS paper!!!

My card is made with real red and soft suede card stock. The DS paper I used is from the mini, Christmas Cocoa Speciality. The stamp set is also from the mini, "Berry Christmas". Don't you love the "country" feel of this card? I stamped the main image with soft suede ink onto the white card stock. I used real red to add the berries. The bird is cut from the "Merry Details" sizzlit, and mounted with a dimensional. I used the circle and scallop circle nesties to cut and mat the main image. The sentiment comes from the same set and I used the word window and modern label punches.

I finished this one off with some gold sticky rhinestones and some real red grosgrain ribbon.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
