Christmas Thanks...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

It's a Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge and despite my terrible time crunch today, I decided to whip up a thank you card for the wonderful gifts and good-wishes we will be getting this year. The awesome design team at PPA unearthed this lovely image as this week's inspiration and I chose to use the colors in my card.
Okay, so I'm completely addicted to Rub-ons, especially the Chit Chat set from Stampin' Up. For this card, I actually selected words from two different sentiments, one in Chocolate Chip and the other in Whisper White. It's a great way to say what you want without a lot of hassle! I created my snowy park scene with a self-made stencil, a sponge dauber, and some craft ink. I wanted a very soft look, so I used only craft ink, and I was pleased with the effect.
BEAN NOTES: (Unless otherwise noted, all materials are Stampin' Up) Pendant Park Stamps; Chit Chat Rub-Ons; Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla Craft Ink; Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, and Riding Hood Red Cardstock; Kate's Paperie Olive Organza Ribbon

No matter how hard I stare, I can't figure out how you made the snow with a stencil. I thought it was digital software. This is gorgeous, Bean :) Hugs, M

This is stunning, Regina! I love the snow drifts and the snow-covered Pendant Park tree! The bench and squirrel add just the right touch too. Fantastic take on the Inspiration Card!
