CAS Color Throwdown Challenge

Time for a challenge.
This weeks CAS challenge over at
Splitcoaststampers is to use stitching or faux stitching.
Since I'm too lazy to drag out my sewing machine, I
opted for the faux stitching!

I love the color challenges over at the

This week, the colors are especially gorgeous, don't ya think??

I decided to use my brand new 

I was subscribed to a monthly stamp club, but I just don't need
any paper, ribbons or embellishments.  So, I decided to go with
the SOTW over at Unity.  It's only $5.79/week and that
includes shipping!!

my card:

I colored the Christmas ornaments with my ink pads and a blender
pen.  I used my copics to color the tree trunk, and to just make a few
"swipes" onto the branches of the trees to give them a bit of color.
I also took my sparkly gelly roll pen and went over the bows as well
as the sentiment.  It gave it just enough sparkle.

Stamps: Unity SOTW
Paper: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, White, BG Wassail dp
Ink: Versafine black
Misc: paper piercer, copics, gelly roll pen, star wood veneer
