Be Merry!

 Hi guys! Hope you have had a fantastic weekend! It has been kinda gloomy here in the Piedmont, but warm. So I can't complain! I just hope the weather stays good for tomorrow night, so the Panthers can whoop up on the Patriots!!!! Grrrrrrrowwwwlll!!!!!
Enough about all that....
I wanted to share a card that I made this afternoon.



 I loosely followed




And I think it turned out so cute!!!
The Christmas tree is a Simon Says die. I cut it out in white card stock and then colored the branches with Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks. This die actually cuts out ornaments and a star too, but I wanted to add some dimension. So I used red sequins and a Tim Holtz mirrored star that I colored with a Copic marker. 
The sketch called for some type of horizontal line on the background, so I decided to use the sentiment and Christmas lights from a real cute stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Peace Joy Love.  I colored the little lights with my Copics.


Hope you like my card!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
GO PANTHERS!!!!!

Very very adorable! I like the way you colored the tree.

I am guessing you are a big football fan, eh? Hope you had fun watching the games this weekend! And i was thinking about your knee. Is it feeling better?

Mackie, this is Whimsy with a capital "W" and I am in love with it! That string of lights looks perfect, as if it sproinked right out from the tree! LOL! This is a winner in my book; I think it's a wonderful take on the sketch!! Hugs, Darnell
