A Lovely Blend of Companies...

I made this card using stamps from 2 different companies. The image of the girl is a Magnolia stamps and the image of the pine branch is from DRS... I felt like they just really went well together! Sometimes, if my plate is empty (LOL) I will stamp some images and just color them to have something to do...especially when I don't have a card in mind. This was one of these images! First, I stamped the pine branch right onto the patterned paper. Then I colored it in and used Twinkling H2O's (twinks) to color the ornaments. Then, I cut out the image of the little girl and adhered her so she looked like she was decorating the tree! I used my own layout and added the sentiment to balance the layout... and here she is! Of course, I used my gel and glitter pens because I almost have to sit on my hands not to! So here is the challenge... check your stamp stash and see which ones work together... it is fun to see how they can compliment each other. Thanks for stopping by!
