More Christmas cards =)

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend! I saw this color combo somewhere recently, but I can't remember where. The card I saw used Baja Breeze though, but I don't have that color yet, so I used Soft Sky. This first card looked a lot better before I put those huge brads on. Problem was though, I poked all the holes with my paper piercer, and then decided the holes I poked were too close to the edge so I poked new ones next to them. Then I decided that smaller brads would look much better, but by that point it was too late, because the small brads wouldn't cover up both holes. Duh! lol Oh, well. I'm still pretty happy with it though. The brads were silver, but I just embossed them to make them white. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this stamp set! I love coloring it! I wanted to use my Copics, but I didn't have the right colors, so I used an SU marker for the Burgundy and an Aqua Painter with my Soft Sky ink pad.
-Stamps-Crazy for Christmas, Polka Dots & Paisley, PTI Take a Bough
-Paper-Bravo Burgundy, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Whisper White
-Ink-Palette Black, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Bravo Burgundy
-Accessories-Sewing machine, white thread, brads, Aqua painter and, Bravo Burgundy marker and 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle punches

Loved the color combo so much I decided to make another biggrin. I just inked up the image with Soft Sky, and then went right over it with markers.

Those are all too cute! I had to LOL because what you went thru with the punching of holes, etc, sounds like something I would do! But, you can't even tell! I love the color combo, too!
