Here's the card I came up with:
I used the Merry & Bright set for my card today.  I started with Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet and layered on a piece of Metallic card stock, Silver Lining.  On top of the silver I used a piece of Turquoise Sea which I ran through my Vagabond using the Spots & Dots Cuttlebug folder.  I used my Sakura Glitter Pen, Silver Star pen to highlight some of the embossing. 

I stamped my image on White card stock and my Copics to color it in.  I used the Glitter Pen to highlight the ‘strings and bows’ and my clear pen to cover the ornaments giving them a bit of shine.  I used my Fancy Tags 2 Nestabilities to punch it out and mount with Pop Dots.  My sentiment was stamped again on White and I used the Ribbon Tags 2 which I sponged on some Vivid Turquoise ink before removing it.  A few self adhesive pearls to the lower corner and bow finish my card.

This REALLY got me in the mood for making Christmas cards and I know you will enjoy having this for not only cards but it would be a great stamp for those Christmas tags!!

Thanks for stopping by and head on over to the Stamp TV Forum to see a list of all those participating in the hop!!

Happy hopping & shopping!!  Have a great day!  *smile*

I really like the non-tradional color scheme for a Christmas card . . . the die cut, the addition of the Sakura pen, your coloring. All of it adds up to a really great card!
