Christmas Challenge with The Paper Players

One of the blogsites I love is The Paper Players .  They have a challenge every week and this week it's Christmas.  You can never have enough christmas card ideas and they give you a whole week to play.  I have been making cards to sell at a local store.  I have been loving the bells and boughs stamp set in the occasional mini.   Vintage seems to be in this year and I love the way this card came together.  I have been sticking with cherry cobbler and always artichoke.....these two colors look awesome together.  I started with a piece of cherry cobbler as my base. I added a piece of always artichoke to enhance the whisper white which is stamped the sentiment in cherry cobbler and the holly stamped in always artichoke.  I then used a cherry cobbler pen to color in the berries.  The ornament is from the contempo christmas stamp set  in cherry cobbler and punched out with the ornament punch.  I then took some dimensionals to pop up the ornament.  I have also love the new seam binding ribbon.  It is so easy to work with.  All the stamp sets and ribbon can be ordered from the occasional mini.  I am going to post my card on the paper players website....go check it out.     Happy Stamping!!!!!!
