'Tis The Season To Be Jolly

 Hello to all,

I had some creative fun last night after dinner just playing with one of my new C&9th stamp sets. I had an idea and I wanted to see if it looked as good on paper as it did in my mind's eye, LOL.

Using a few challenges, the Just Add Ink color challenge, the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, and the Clean and Simple theme from this week's Paper Players Challenge, I made this card.

The triangle stamp is from the C&9th Painted Shapes stamp set. I pulled five colors represented in the inspiration photo from Just Add Ink and stamped it to make a large triangle (tree). The large sentiment and star tree topper are from an older C&9th set called Trim the Tree. 

Keeping with the PP Clean & Simple theme, this is a one layer card with only the stamped images and a small yellow gem in the center of the star.

I've used a holiday sentiment and images from the C&9th Hollyberry Turnabout set on the inside.

I had fun making this card. The triangles were stamped using an acrylic block, and I used the Misti to line up and stamp the sentiment. Love that it turned out as I imagined it. 

Thanks and have a great Tuesday afternoon and evening,
