Today My Favorite Things is sponsoring Card Positioning Systems. Since I hadn't had time to play with this month's Flopsey (and you *know* how much I love me some Flopsey!) I decided to try him with the sketch.
I stamped Tree Trimming Flopsey, the star, and the tree on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored with Copic markers and paper pieced and cut them out. Patterned paper is from the Holiday Collection 8 x 8 pad by DCWV, card stock is gold metallic and Handsome Hunter. I used gold metallic card stock and punched out a border, then laid a piece of ribbon on it. Flopsey's background is more patterned paper, cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Label Four die and edged with a gold paint pen. Flopsey and the tree and star are popped up on 3M foam squares and Pop Dots. The sentiment was stamped, cut/embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die, sponged with River Rock ink to tone down the stark white, then edged with the gold paint pen. I added some gold flat-backed pearls to the tree, the background, and to the ribbon for balance.
Thanks for dropping by--you know I love it when you do! Be sure to check out the CPS sketch and give it a whirl!
