Mark’s Finest Papers

For my first card I used Christmas in the Country.  I love this set and am very please with how easy it is to color.  I colored  the church with copics and then sponged the sky with summer sky memento ink and the ground with desert sand.  It is a bit hard to tell in the photo, but the image is matted on navy and silver card stock.
Next I have a card using Snowball.  Snowball is such a fun set with cute images and fun sentiments.  I picked this adorable penguin for my card.  For the background I embossed light blue card stock with a sizzix folder and then with a white paint dabber I highlighted the snowflakes.  The snow drifts are just torn paper and accented with stickles.

Good luck and thank you for stopping by.
