Season to Sparkle with Kindness and Joy

 Hello, I'm getting into the Christmas spirit! I'm happy to be here with a second card made just for the fun of playing in some new challenges. A new to me challenge, Christmas Craft Creations' theme is monochromatic cards. There were several entries that inspired me and a huge variety of color combos. 

I loved the idea of using pink and purples, so I searched my DSP files and found the retired paper from SU that forms the background panel for my card. 

The second challenge at 52 Christmas Countdown features one of my favorite techniques. Make a shaker card! My snowman image was stamped with Fig ink (Concord & 9th) onto white card stock and colored simply with Copic markers in rosy hues. A little ink blending around the snowman and a white snowy strip at the bottom help complete the scene. 

The new-to-me stamp and die are called Kindness and Joy from Penny Black. You can never have too many snow-people stamps, right? The sentiment is from a lovely PB set called Jolly Snippets that has some of the cutest sayings in small sizes and varied fonts.

Thanks so much for your visit today, I'm beginning to feel back in crafty rhythm again! 

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

Oooh, I love the pretty purples and that jolly snowman in his shaker with the snowy sprinkles! The silver bow is just right, too. Penny Black is one of my favorites for coloring.
