Hiya friends and welcome to another week with The Paper Players! I am excited to be the hostess this week for a Holiday Hoopla theme challenge...only it's Holiday with a twist. The challenge is to Create something Holiday with non-holiday stamps or colors...how fun is that?!
My card isn't quite what I had in my mind's eye but I really wanted to show you what Christmas looks like in my part of the world:
We really do have palm trees in our yard and while it's too tall to hang ornaments on it, it does get decked out with Christmas lights every year! Let's take a closer look:
I needed something small to decorate my tree so I used a standard-issue office supply paper punch to punch a hole and saved the circle it made. I added a drop of Crystal Effects to each one and while it was wet, sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on. Faux glimmer brads...in any size you want! I sponged some Bashful Blue clouds in the background and colored the tree with Stampin' Write markers in Certainly Celery and Lucky Limeade. The rest is pretty obvious so I will just encourage you to pop on over to The Paper Players and check out the amazing work by my fellow Design Team members--rumor has it there's another palm tree on the DT:
