Love this set!!

See, I told you I was in a Christmas Card mood! Here's another card I made over the weekend using the Hero Arts clear Christmas set, which I just LOVE!! It's all Julee's fault...she made me buy them.

I wanted this card to be really simple, so I made my card base out of Soft Sky, stamped the little scalloped border from my Faux Ribbon set by Papertrey Ink in Palette Hybrid Noir, and added a white strip with black ribbon wrapped around it.

The main images are stamped in Noir on Papertrey White and then colored with Prismacolors and Odorless Mineral Spirits. I masked the tree and stamped the large Skinny Oval from A Muse in Pomegranate to make it look like a tree skirt or a rug. The sentiment is from Papertrey's new Holiday Treats set, and I just love it with these birdies. I matted the image on Basic Black, added some stickles to the star for sparkle, and popped the panel up on pop dots.

Ok, on with other news...

The Verve Visual contest deadline has been extended until Friday!! You still have time... and Julee is giving away some AMAZING prizes to the winners! See this post for more info.

Also, only one more week until you will start seeing Sneak Peeks on the Verve Blog of the new sets (oohh, did I say SETSSS??) that are going to be released in October. Don't worry, I'll remind you!!

The Soft Sky looks SO good with black and Pomegranate! I can't believe that the little scalloped border is a stamp---too cool, looks like trim of some sort.
Your coloring is impeccable Shannan! A girl can only dream of being this good! *sigh*
