Just a quick reminder that there are only 14 days left for Christmas. Do you have all of your Christmas cards mailed out yet? If not, here's a cute sketch at Create with Connie & Mary for you this week:

I loved coming up with a card using this sketch. I also love the colors I used with the Champagne Glimmer Paper in-between. The colors sure pop:

I added a whole lot of sponging in the top corners of my stamped layer to soften things up a bit. The Ornamental Pine stamp set looks great doesn't it? I hand-cut the pine cones and the white embossed ornament and glued them in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Notice the Cherry Cobbler Candy in the center of my ornament? I made those using Crystal Effects and my Blendabilities Marker. I have a tutorial HERE on how to make these!

Notice how the Glimmer Paper peeks out and adds just the right amount of shine to my card without going overboard? I also added a little bit of Dazzling Details to the pine branches:

Make sure you visit Create with Connie & Mary to see more inspiration with this great sketch this week!
