Starry Holly

One of my sons is sick today... so I'm home with him even if I had a huge day at work... I guess I'll have even more tomorrow.

So I just had to play again at Meljen's with their sketch.  I used a wonderful digi called Starry Holly.

I kept this card really CAS... I usually go all out... not this time.  I used paper from American Craft - Jolly and some American Craft - Dear Lizzy buttons.

I colored the image with my copics and added some stickles to the stars.
Here's a wonderful sentiment from Create with TLC it's part of the set here.

For this card I decided to play along with some wonderful colors from Dynamic Duos!  I had not played in forever!
And I followed the sketch over at Meljen's 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. 365 cards - CAS
  2. Dynamic duos challenge - Colors shown above

    CAS has it's own particular endearing qualities. I admire anyone who colors (beautifully) as you have done. Bring more it inspires me. Thank you for linking it with us at WAW.

  11. I'm so loving this card. I think you did a fantastic job on keeping it simple. The American Craft paper is so interesting that more could easily detract away from it. :D You definitely a great job with the holly and ofc the Create with TLC sentiment is gorgeous and goes perfectly!
