Today's card started with Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and was inspired by the paper which I just love working with.
All the paper is Little Yellow Bicycle 25 Days of Christmas and Stampin' Up Whisper White. The background layer was textured with the Sizzix Flourish plate. The image is Denami Design Christmas Holly Vine which was stamped with Color Box gold, clear heat embossed and coloured with Sakura Gelly Roll Gold Shadow pens. The sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms Vintage Christmas Expressions.
I love that this sketch really allowed me to play up the beautiful Little Yellow Bicycle paper. It is thick, rich and smooth and just wonderful on my cards. I know I should probably back off of the holly images but to be honest, I've so many that I'd really like to just use them over and over and over. I like how the Gold Shadow ink has come out much differently with the gold outline as opposed to the black. This is an interesting discovery that I will have fun exploring.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
