I love making Xmas cards!

I'm entering this card into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge # 140, Anything Christmas Challenge.  I sponged the collage with Distress inks Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Wild Honey.  I used Copic markers to color in the holly and applied Red Stickles to the berries.  Hero Arts Holiday Sayings and someone nice sent me this stamped collage.  I think it's Hero Arts too.  Love it.

My second card I made early this week.  I thought I'd share it too.

Yellow, green and white?  Well, it works for me.  I was tired of not having a tree just like the one on the car, so  I stamped just the tree (of course you still have the top of the car - simple solution is to CUT the tree out.  I really like the way this turned out - I feel like I'm in a forest.

Hero Arts Car with Tree ( F5528) and Cling Dots (CG139) stamps gave me my car a forest setting.  Copic markers are always my favorites.  I hope you like it too.
