Pine cones and Holly

They're up to Challenge # 84 already over at A La Card Monkey! The sketches just keep coming. This was another "Anything Goes + sketch" Challenge.  First the sketch:

Now my card:

I used Garden Green cardstock with Frostwood Lodge DSP. The image is from the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set. I used Early Espresso and Real Red markers on the stamp. Then, because I don't happen to have a Garden Green marker, I carefully sponged it onto the stamp from my stamp pad. I stamped the image 4 times, once in each corner to get the wreath effect. I mounted it on a square of Early Espresso cardstock and attached it with dimensionals. The ribbon is SUs Mistletoe.

I'm also adding this to Shirley's Christmas Blog Hop:


  1. Just lovely, love the Frostwood designs.

  2. What a fun and Christmasy card. The ribbon detail is fabulous.

  3. Beautiful card!!

  4. Nice job with the sketch, Marie! That ribbon looks terrific, and you did a great job inking that Garden Green ink without markers.

  5. Love the woody background with your wonderful pine cones! Thanks for sharing and good luck with the challenge :)
