Anything Goes With Friends

Hello again and welcome to Monday!  I'm here with another Friends of Speedy TV challenge.  This week we are up to challenge number 45 and it is a free for all.  This week, anything goes.  While I was sitting at my desk, I just waited for inspiration to strike.  I thumbed through my wonderful Mark's Finest Paper stamps and New Pines jumped out at me.  Suddenly, I felt a clean and simple Christmas card coming on.  I grabbed a sentiment from the new Poinsettia Blooms set and away I went. 
I stamped my trees first and colored them.  Then I stamped over them again with Versamark and embossed with a glittery embossing powder.  Then I cut out my snowbanks and used the same embossing powder just on the top crust of my snow.  A handful of rhinestones and a stamped sentiment finish off my card! 

Don't forget to play along with this wide open challenge!  You know that Mark's Finest Papers is a generous company and there is a prize up for grabs, specifically the Christmas Bridge stamp set.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This looks so sparkly when you zoom in - I never remember to do the double stamping and then have to fight with glitter - thanks for the reminder!
