Speedy's Challenge #27, Holiday Card!

Hello, it's Saturday and that means it's time for another challenge from Speedy The Cat's Friends! This weeks Challenge #27 is to make a Holiday Card!

There were 228 amazing creations submitted last week, that means 4 winners, how awesome is that!!! So make sure to upload your card or project to Mark's Finest Papers Blog for your chance to win. There is a FREE stamp set drawn for every 50 entries!

So onto my card, and it includes a sneak peek of a new set to be released soon, called Musical Holiday! I also used this weeks sketch challenge SC304.

I picked the designer paper first, it's from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses pad, also available at MFP. Then I picked Old Olive and Pink Pirouette cardstock.

The horn was stamped onto white and coloured with copics. Then I cut the horn out, I did consider cutting out the middle intricate bits, but I decided to chicken out and just use a white background! lol The horn is popped up on dimensionals, and I added the sheer bow to it!

The pink panel was embossed with the Holly Ribbons embossing folder. The center music panel is a stamp also in this set, and I stamped it in rich razzleberry!

Have a Great Weekend!

After seeing this, I'm slapping my forehead and wondering why I never bought Eskimo Kisses dp!! It looks BEAUTIFUL with this lovely stamped image! The musical background really adds to the theme of the card, and the colors you chose look stunning!!

What a splendid creation using the gorgeous image. The dp, embossing folder, and my favorite Rich Razzleberry just helped to send this 'over the top'. It's a beauty!!
