Paper Lovin Gals #8 & Inkspirations Sketch

Ackk!! I'm late today... You know I actually thought today was Wednesday Ha Ha.. It's been a crazy week, I even took my son to an appointment that he had yesterday because I was totally confused. I just can't keep up anymore!

So this morning I broke out some Christmas Music and put myself in the mood and got crafty for this week's Paper Lovin' Gals Inspiration Challenge and I mixed it up with the Sketch from Inkspirations. The pieces have been on my desk for a bit, I just wasn't sure what to do with them. This Sketch really helped bring them all together.

This week we have a Christmas Photo that will inspire and Delight! Look at that sparkle and those Bright fun Colors... I'm all about a Modern feel to Christmas instead of the Dark Greens & Reds.

For my card I drew my inspiration from the Colors and Sparkle in the photo. I didn't want to go super bright though... I had these Self adhesive Chipboard stickers from K&Company on my desk and the colors are perfect. They even have some glitter in them for a touch of Bling!

It's super bright outside today so it was tricky getting a photo.. My card base is Baja Breeze and I took the ink pad directly to the edges. Then I used some retired DSP from SU in Riding Hood Red and Mounted on a matching piece of solid card stock. Then I punched a scalloped border on a piece of So Saffron and ink the edges up in the same color and added the tinsel.

For my focal image I cut a Oval with an embossed edge from some Whisper White card stock and sponged inside the embossed area with some Pool Party ink and then I mounted the die cuts onto that. I put the tree down first then I placed the JOY over it.. These already had the Rhinestones & Pearls on them, SO CUTE!

These will be popping up in a few more projects here very soon. Head over to the Paper Lovin' Gals Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT created this week based off the photo and then hop over to Inkspirations and check out their challenge.

Have a great rest of your Thursday... I'll see you back here tomorrow for the Friday Mashup!
