One Layer Christmas Card Challenge Reminder

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to remind you about the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge going on right now.  It's our very first challenge and we'd love to see you link up there!  There's still time!  You have until January 19th.  Here's a recap of the challenge.

Also, if you link up a card that uses the twist you are entered in for the prize drawing!  Just visit the OLCCC blog for all the info.  We've got some new inspiration cards from some of the DT members too!  I've made a new card to try and entice you to play along.  Take a look...

I was a little more subtle with the red twist this time.  Just my tiny berries are red.  Here's how I made my card.  First I stamp my pine bough in forest moss distress ink and I sometimes would stamp twice before re-inking to get a lighter shade.  I added some pine boughs in mown lawn distress ink as well.  Then I took a paint brush and some water and lightly brushed it over top of my pine boughs to make the ink bleed a little bit.  Then I added my berries in Memento Lady Bug ink using some small dot stamp from the Wallflower set by CAS-ual Fridays.  Then I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  Simple card to make, really, but I quite like the results.

So I hope you take the time to get ahead on your Christmas cards and join us over at OLCCC!  Love to see you there!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
