Penny's Challene #15 - Sketch #5

Happy Day Everyone! It's time again for Penny's Challenges and today we have a sketch to play with! I do hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and play along! Who knows, YOU just might be out next FEATURED PROJECT specialist!!! Remember, when you are uploading your card/project to other online galleries (PCP, SNR, SCS), please use the code "PC15" and don't forget to share it with us back on Penny's Challenge Blog by adding a DIRECT LINK to Mr. Linky.

Now, on to today's creation! When I began thinking about what to create with Penny's sketch, I saw these 3 trees laying on my worktable and thought "UH HUH!!! They will work quite nicely"!! So it began....

These trees where created using my new Spellbinder's Shapabilities (Nested Pine Trees) along with Gold & Silver Metallic cardstock. I've added Stickles to "decorate" them up a bit. The holly border is a stamp by Outlines Rubber Stamps Co. and I've used a green (though it looks black) Prismacolor marker for the holly and silver Stickles for the berries. My "Merry Christmas" sentiment is by Inkadinkado.

Pretty easy peasy for a holiday card but I'm happy with it!! Here's a peek at the inside if you're interested. I'm not always good about "completing" my cards (bad!!) until I'm ready to send them ... not always a good thing to do! I figure I'll definately be sending all the Christmas cards I'll be making over the next month ... so why not save myself some hassle and have them all "READY TO GO". The sentiment is by Great Impressions and the snowflake border is by EK Success.

Before you go ... please take the time to hop on over to my co-team members blogs to see what they have created with this fun sketch! You can find all the links on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having an AWESOME day!!! I'll be watching for your addition to Mr. Linky and will be sure to CHECK IT OUT!!!
