SoftPencil Thursday & Mojo Monday Challenge

This week for softpencil our challeng was to use our favorite Christmas color combo. This year I wasn't so much into the traditional greens and reds and have been really liking this paper from Kaisercraft that is blue, cream and pink. So that is what I went with for this card. I also used a sketch challenge from mojo monday challenge. I really enjoyed doing this sketch. I got out my Martha Stewart circle cutter which I had been told by many (I did some research before buying another circle cutter) that this one by Martha Stewart was really great and easy to use but for some reason the first time I used it....it didn't seem so easy. Well, I got it out again yesterday to use and I think I realized, I was pushing way too hard before because this time my circles came out just perfect. I used vanilla SU! paper for the base and the new pink In Color from SU! for the background circles. I used two sugar coated brads, my SU! punch for the sentiment and the sentiment itself is also from SU! The image from Softpencil is called We wish you a merry Christmas.....is it not a totally cute image!!! Ribbon is also from SU! and the little bling at the bottom is Stamping Bellas donuts...I have a bit of a fetish for them!


Again, the image is from Softpencil and it's called We wish you a Merry Christmas. I used my copics to color and of course had to add stickles for the snow and on the tree. You will find I don't do very many projects where stickles or some kind of glitter isn't involved!
