Kicking off Christmas cards with LOTV

I've officially started my Christmas cards for 2010.  Yikes... it's almost November and I'm just now starting.  Oh well... there will be many challenges coming over the next few weeks that will help me out!  : )  I've started this season out using and aDORable  Lili of the Valley stamp called Skating Along.


Dontcha just LOVE her and her little dog too??  I'm just gaga over all the new Christmas stamps from LOTV!   And now they are about to have another wonderful release!  I can't wait!


The layout for this card was from an LOTV challenge from a few weeks ago.  I must say, I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out..  I glittered her up pretty good, sponged around the entire image and used some crystal stickles on the ice to try to replicate shimmering ice.  For the sentiment, I simply inked up the stamp with the same color I'd sponged on for the sky.  I wanted a subtle result that wouldn't take away from the image.  I was very pleased with the result.  I really enjoyed pulling this one together.


Challenges:
Lili of the Valley - winter fun
Theme Thursday - winter
Southern Girls Challenge - glitter it up
Pals Paper Arts - bring on the bling
7 Kids College Fund - flowers and layers
Wags 'n Whiskers - merry & bright

Well... it's late (for me) and I need to head off to bed.  Thanks for popping in today.  Come back soon, ya hear!!  : )  Take care my friends.
