Waltzingmouse Sketch and Christmas Card Challenges + Lily Pad Cards and Simon Says Stamp



This week's Waltzingmouse Sketch... I forgot the challenge ended at 11am my time and missed linking! :(

I made this with May's WMS Christmas Card challenge in mind which calls for trees (must be a forum member to view).

I broke out my Glue Pad to glitter up those starry trees. I used a chisel glue pen to glitter the edge of the torn vellum (I Xyron-ed the vellum first). I used a strip of green sequins to draw the eye to the sentiment.

Simon Says Stamp's weekly challenge is to use punches or dies... Love my Edgers dies!

Lily Pad Cards has a bling challenged sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! Too easy! Glitter may be a pain to work with but it certainly adds bling! [Edited to add:] I also added 3 rhinestones in front of "greetings." The sentiment seemed a little naked!

Thanks so much for looking!
