Paper Players Color Challenge

I really wanted to make a card last week for The Paper Players snowman challenge, but it was never accomplished.  I was working on my Christmas cards all week.  When I saw what their color challenge was today, I knew I had to make time to participate.  So I did just that this afternoon.  My hubby headed out-of-town on business and Michael was doing homework, so I came upstairs and created.

This is what got my inspiration swirling along with the sketch challenge (#306) at Splitcoast.

This is what my inky fingers created ...

Stamps:  Jolly Old St. Nick
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke
DSP:  Jolly Holly
Ink:  Staz-on black
Accessories:  Cuttlebug Spots & Dots embossing folder, eyelets (non-SU), Spellbinder circle dies, Prismacolor markers & pencils, White Signo pen, Crop-a-dile
All products are SU! unless otherwise noted.
  • I used my Signo pen to color in all the white parts ... it adds some texture too.
  • I did not want to add too many details to this card.  I wanted Santa to be my main focal point.
  • I apologize for the photograph not being the best.  I took the picture tonight and used artificial light.
Thanks for stopping by and I enjoy reading your comments.  If you have any questions, please e-mail me at

Have a great day,
