Countdown to Christmas #15

Good morning and happy Sunday. I get to go meet with my club today and have some fun crafty time, but in the meantime, I've got Christmas Card #15. This is a different look and I used some bright cheery colors and what could be called non-traditional, but in all honestly during the holidays we see a lot of pink and green.

And guess what? I didn't even use a Christmas stamp except for the sentiment of course. The tree stamp is from a Hero Arts set called Tree, Bird, and Messages and the sentiment is from a holiday set from My Sentiments Exactly.

I did add some stickles to the little flowers on my tree and I'm just venting here, but I've had the worst problem with this one color clogging. I think I've wasted more than I've used, but for some reason its just this one color. Its a "whatever" moment or moments when in use.

Card base is Neenah and the rest of the cardstock is from Papertrey ink as is the ribbon. EK Success border punch and image colored with Copics. Nestability die to cut out image and I think that does it!

Hope you have a great Sunday and I'll catch you later!
