Christmas Kick...

Ok, so I have been on a roll today, and of course, still on the Christmas kick... I mean do you have any idea how much family I have, not to mention friends??? So I figure doing the challenges is a fun way to come up with new card ideas and also flare up some inspiration. The first comes from Kristina Werner's unbelieveably awesome blog. I can not tell you how addicted I am. She has an amzing talent and everything she does looks perfect! Here's this week's color inspiration:

And here is what I did with it:

See the fun brads at the top and the faux stitching:

A close up of the merry sentiment. All I did here was take the sticker slap it on some cardstock, (which is more teal than sage shadow, but it just worked here), drew some polka dot edging with a gel pen and wrote in the rest of "merry":

And the coordinating brads at the bottom:

My second source of inspiration comes in the form of a sketch, complimenti I {heart} 2 stamp. This is a blog I recently started stalking, and I really like the projects they create here. Anywho, the sketch:
And what I did:

These brads are the major colors used in the card:

I just had to add some bling:

And here we are again coloring those stamps:

Adios Amigos!
