Without further ado, here is my card for the blog hop.


I absolutely adore the ugly sweater in the Tis the Season set! =)


The sweaters are stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers then die cut using the matching Tis the Season Icons die set.


I stamped the party accessaries from Tis the Season set on the card front by stamping the first two impressions on scrap paper in order to get the lighter gray color. The sentiment is from the Holiday Cheer set also from the October release.

That's all for now. Don't forget to hop along with us and leave comments along the way for a chance to win! =)

Have fun hopping and thanks so much for stopping by!
