CPS Sketch # 195 - The {Stamps} of Life... Take 2!

Hello! I'm back to share a second design for this week's CPS Sketch! This week our sponsor is the {Stamps} of Life! I really couldn't wait to create with this second stamp set (Holly4Christmas)... it's amazing in every way.  I love the font for the sentiments, the images, everything!

Holly Jolly Christmas

I split the sentiment on my main panel (carefully inking - and covering the part I didn't want to be inked with cellophane tape).  I embossed and then colored with Copic markers.  The strand of lights was embossed, colored and carefully trimmed to adhere to the front of my card.

The holly leaves were pieced with some of the (perfectly themed - if I do say so myself) patterned paper and used as an embellishment.
Thanks for visiting!
