One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #18

Hello!  It's a lovely day to start a new challenge, don't you think?  Well, today over at One Layer Christmas Cards Challenge, we have a new one starting.  As usual it's anything goes, but there is a twist if you choose to accept.  :-).  This time the twist is Mistletoe.  And if you use the twist you could win a prize!

Can you believe that of all the millions (okay, maybe not millions, but my husband would say it was) of Christmas stamps I have that I didn't have a single mistletoe one?!!  Until I got this new set from STAMPlorations, Dee's Artsy Impressions line.  But, shhhhhhhh, it's not quite available yet (check back next week to see more) so let's just move on to the card!  Take a look...

First, I stamped my bow and then again on a post-it note to make a mask of it.  Once my bow was covered by the mask I stamped my mistletoe.  I removed the mask and coloured it all in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen to the berries.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then added three scored lines on either side.  I really like how the scored lines really add to the overall design while still keeping it CAS.  

Well, I hope I've inspired you to not only get a head start on your Christmas cards but to join us over at OLCCC.  Remember there's a prize up for grabs if you use the twist.  You really should at least check out the other DT member's projects as they are all fabulous.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for visiting.
