Sweet Sunday 45

Here is my Sweet Sunday card for this week. I had to dig through all my Xmas stamps to find one that I thought would work with this sketch and that I hadn't yet used this year. I'm sure glad I found this guy.

Here are the card details:

Paper: SU Holiday Lounge DP, SU real red and some sparkly white paper from my stash.
You may want to click on the picture to see how sparkly it is.

I double stamped the penquin image from Sudio G (Michael's), colored both with my copics, embossed the second one with clear embossing powder, cut it out and popped it on dimensionals over the original. I cut the original with a nestie inverted scallop circle and backed that with a nestie regular scallop circle cut out of the red dp. I used my CB dots embossing folder on the sparkly white behind the image and trimmed the bottom of that piece with my MS icicle punch. I just love that punch for Xmas trim, as you can tell with a number of my other recent posts:)

The sentient is from a "Recollections" clear acrylic set called "Merry, Merry". It's a long border stamp that I embossed on real red with Zing white embossing powder. I used the SU word window punch to punch just part of the border to make my sentiment. I mounted that on more sparkly white paper punched with one of the new SU label punches. Finally, the pretty red striped ribbon was some that I found in my Xmas ribbon stash.

I liked how this turned out so I think I will make a few more for Xmas this year. Thanks for stopping by:))
