A SCS Sketch!

How is your week going so far? I'm OK, but everyone here keeps saying we are going to have snow any day and I have so much to do to be ready for it! I feel a little overwhelmed!

The sketch for my card today comes form Splitcoaststampers weekly card sketch (#250). It is a really straight forward card. The trees (from the Taylored Expressions set Holiday Wonder) were colored with Copics, cut out and mounted on the squares which were cut using my Square Nestabilities. The Cool Caribbean panel was embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and I did some piercing. I borrowed the color scheme from a color challenge on Christmas Stamping All Year Long from a few weeks ago.

The Details:
Stamp: Holiday Wonder - Taylored Expressions
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Rich Razelberry, Night of Navy, Whisper White, PTI White
G14,G17,BG45,BG49,R59 w/V06 over it, B95W/B39 over it, E49
Misc: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Paper Piercer, Nestabilities Squares

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your day is great!!
