Ever Green

Another Tuesday, another Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. This was a really fun one!

I stamped the trees from Stampendous Evergreen Borders set with three different shades of green from lightest to darkest, then used a Signo Uni-ball white pen to make a light "snowfall". I had to add just a touch of Stickles to make it glisten. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter glittered holiday papers. These papers are drop dead gorgeous and I was so excited to pick them up at half price last week at Craft Warehouse. I added some crystals and one of Karen Foster's Sparkle Burst Brads for more bling.

Thanks for another great sketch Mercy!
