Mish Meets Embellish Online

My marathon stamping session Saturday night (well, marathon by my means) paid off in that I was able to get some cards created for some challenges I had been wanting to participate in.

I was THRILLED to see one of my stamp idols had created a sketch challenge and it was a challenge for me (this is my 2nd card for it-the first is resting nicely in the garbage).  I created this for Michelle Wooderson (Mish) first sketch & also for the Embellish Online challenge.

Chipboard is not one of those go-to embellishments I use.  I adore what others do with them but I often wondered how they always made them so pretty with designer paper.  Some of them seem so difficult to cut around, but I decided to try again.  I love the added heart embellishment on this one!  I covered it with a pretty paintchip color and then added the stickles over it to really make it sparkle.

I have all this designer paper laying around and really need to use some of it before I go out and buy the newest papers out there.  I pulled out this SEI paper pack I bought at Michael's and love the colors/texture of it.  This is from the Black Orchid paper pack.

The little polka dot circles I used is from a set called Woodlands from Clear & Simple Stamps, thought it was perfect for adding a little more sparkle to the centers.  The ribbon I also bought at Michael's.

Hope you enjoyed my card, tomorrow I hope to share some of my favorite pictures from our Christmas in Charleston.
