It is an over cast day here today in Thunder Bay, so my photos didn't turn out as great as they could be.

Happy Holidays with Lili of the Valley

This week's challenge on Sparkle Creation's Weekly Christmas Card Challenge is to use punches.

My girlfriends & I scrapbooked together for 12 hours this past Saturday and we challenged each other to use a Lili of the Valley stamp on a card and have it posted on our blogs within 2 weeks.

So, I still had my mojo going from Saturday and I designed this card on Sunday night. On Monday, I made a second card and prepped to make another 10 just like this it.

I challenged myself to keep the card somewhat flat, so the postage won't cost me so much when I go to mail these out come Christmas time.

I used Echo Park's "Everybody loves Christmas" two-sided patterned paper and Bazzill Classic Red, Bazzill Sour Apple & Bazzill Piglet cardstock. The brad is from CTMH and the embroidery floss is from my stash.

I used the EK Success small holly leaf punch, one of their medium photo corner punches and one of their border punches. I also used Creative Memories hexagon punches and Fiskars 1/8" circle hand held punch for the holly berries on the inside of the card.

The "Happy Holidays" sentiment stamp is from CTMH, the inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the image stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

The Copic Markers used: Crown - Y15 & Y18; Dog - E35 & E31; Dog Nose - W8; Holly Leaves - YG21 & C0; Present - BG72 & BG11; Ribbon & Berries - R27 and Pink Background - RV32 & R21.
