Sweet Holiday Music


This week's HM challenge is polka dots. The DT did some fabulous cards so be sure to check them out. They're sure to make you smile. I did mine with my mousie "angels" and robed them in DP from SU's Fall Flowers. I sponged the background lightly with Soft Sky and then embossed some snowflakes on it, which I topped with light blue Kaiser half-pearls. I colored their wings with Copics and the mousies themselves with Prismacolor pencils. The blue paper is Bazzill and the polka dot paper behind it is from SU's Dashing. That is all mounted on this year's DP from SU and I added polka dot ribbon at the bottom from PTI. The basic CS is Wild Wasabi. Thanks to Jennifer who guest hosted this challenge. It was fun doing the polka dots. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful holiday.

Those mice are wonderful, love your card. I have to get that punch - is it the McGill or Martha Stewart one? The Martha one is hard for me to get.

Kirby, I am new to cards and some of your abbreviations have me puzzled. Can you help translate for me? You stated that the angels were robed in DP from SU's Fall Flowers. SU is Stampin' Up but what is DP? Also, the polka dot ribbon is from PTI - who is that? The basic CS is Wild Wasabi. What is a CS? I am sorry to be so new and know so little. Your card is fabulous. Now, if you had had to put text with it, what would you have chosen? Nancy
