Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! I am just sneaking down to the computer for a few minutes while the potatoes are cooking to post a card I made with one of Amy's new Holiday fairies that will be available on Monday at All That Scraps! This is Holly Starshine! Isn't she adorable!? I LOVE these fairies!! Amy is so talented!!

I have been wondering lately if I provide enough information on the making of my cards. I always give the recipe, but unless there is something a little unusual I don't give an explanation. If you would like me to write more about them, let me know. On this card card, I used an EK Success Holly border punch (although it was called a border punch, it actually cut that strip out). I cut a white strip of cardstock slightly smaller than the border strip, held the border strip over it and marked with dots of color where the openings were. I then colored those areas with a green and red marker so that when I layered the black border piece over it the leaves showed green and the berries showed red. I also used a glitter pen to draw veins on all of the leaves. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I used the Taylored Expressions #92 sketch!!

The Details:
Stamps: Holly Starshine - Sweet November through CC Designs (available at All That Scraps), sentiment - Verve
Paper: Bo Bunny (Holly), My Minds Eye (red and white dot), Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Garden Green - SU, PTI White
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: C3,C5,C7, 100
Clothes and Wings: YG11,YG17,G17,G19,R22,R24,R27,R29
Misc: Stickles - Burgundy and Holly, Sakura Clear Star gel pen, EK Success Border Punch, Martha Stewart Holly Punch, Darice gems

Thanks for visiting me today! Good luck tomorrow if you are facing the madness and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

Your coloring and Amy's stamps are a perfect pairing. This is absolutely stunning and there is that amazing black hair! I think you do a fabulous job at giving details about your cards and the recipes. Something I need to do a better job at because I learned a lot about coloring from reading your recipes.
