Sweet Sunday 44

Okay, so it's Sweet Sunday after Mojo Monday this week. I just had to think a while on Karen's sketch this week. I also struggled to get a decent photo as it is overcast today and I couldn't get my lighting right on this shiny background paper. It really is a pretty shade of teal blue, even though the picture shows some greener cast in it.

Here are the details:
The DP is SU's Designer Holiday Lounge, the tan is Bazzill and the shiny blue/teal is from a DCWV cardstock stack called "Citrus". It matches so perfect with the DP. The image is from a clear acrylic set from Inkadinkadoo called "Christmas Characters" and is stamped with SU Taken With Teal ink. I added just a little gray shading with my copics and cut out the image with a nestie label. The circle DP was cut out with my Making Memories cutting tools.

I ran the strip of shiny blue on the bottom through my cuttlebug twice using the dots embossing folder and then added the white borders punched with my EK success wave punch. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" with the teal ink, punched it out and backed it with two more punched circle/scallop pieces, then added the silver brad to the center. Finally, I punched a hole in the center of a ghost snowflake, added a snowflake brad to it and mounted it with a glue dot. Oh, and I did add some little rhinestones to a few snowflakes around the image. The nestie and sentiment are popped with dimensionals. This is one very shiny card. Hope you like it.
