Merry & Bright, PP367

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week sweet and talented Claire is our hostess with a sketch challenge.

Yes, another Christmas card! My stash is starting to build up nicely. For my simple creation, I chose a color palette from the papers in this stack from Lawn Fawn. The cute holly leaves and berries are NBUS from Reverse Confetti. My DH wasn't a big fan of this card, specifically he didn't like the colors. But I just ordered him out of the room and everything was good again, lol! 

Stamp Sets: Winter Word Coordinates (Reverse Confetti)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Snow Day (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: High Drive (Simon Says Stamp)
Tools: Big Shot, Winter Words Dies, Holly Dies (Reverse Confetti)
Accessories: White Baker's Twine (Stampin' Up)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

I think your colours give your card a modern feel, yet still with a nod to tradition - there is something very fresh about today's card! I love the bold die cut sentiment too Sandy - a great Christmas card, I think your husband and I will have to agree to disagree on this one!

I like the colors, in fact, I saved it because of the colors. I think I also have the holly/berry die and I have never used it either. Don't you love it when a plan comes together.

The white dots on the holly are genius!

I like the way you've added in the twine. it's a nice touch. That diagonal stripe ties the colours together nicely.

Sandy, I love the mix of DSPs. I agree with Ann, it is such a happy mix of the shades and you captured the spirit of the sketch beautifully.
