Looking for a Challenge?

Lots of challenge blogs are on hiatus for the holidays, but Lyneen has been kind enough to post a challenge for us at the Vintage Vernada. And, let me say, it was a challenge. More than just a theme. You can see her challenge here. There's a little RAK here, too:)

I finally inked up this Christmas tree stamp I received from Ros as an RAK. It's from Paper Artsy. Since the challenge called for a "little bling" I punched holes in the tree with a tiny punch and then added some very shiny silver paper behind it. It gives it a very neat sparkly effect.

The background text is from Art Impressions. Speaking of Art Impressions, I got their December newsletter through my e-mail yesterday and imagine my surprise to see one of my cards I submitted for their monthly contest on the front page!

Love how you used paper behind the tree and punched the holes. It's always an inspiration to come and visit!
