Holly Jolly Greetings

Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing with you a card I made for my friend Susan's, aka Rainy, monthly sketch challenge.  The sketch challenges are posted on the 15th of every month and continue until the end of that particular month.  For my card, I chose to use a soon to be released set next week by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company called Holly Jolly Greetings.

After stamping my Santa image in memento tuxedo black onto MFP snow storm white, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and got to coloring; making sure my Santa had a vintage look to him.  Once that was finished, I lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around Santa before layering onto MFP's evergreen and scrap Stampin Up! card stock.  Then taking some leftover evergreen card stock, I stamped the holly branch in Tim Holtz pine needles to create my own matching designer paper.  My final touches for the card were gold jingle bell brads, a holly branch, and the greeting stamped onto scrap designer paper from Michael's Recollections holiday collection.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and if you can this month, make sure to participate in Rainy's sketch challenge.  They're a lot of fun!
