Here is the card I did for the Wednesday sketch challenge over on SCS.  I have a cold, so this card took me forever to make, nothing seemed to be coming together right, but in the end I actually love it.  The branch is from the Love Nest stamp set and the pine branch & ornament are from the All that Glitters stamp set, both are from Flourishes.  Here are the steps on how I made this card.
stamped the branch in close to cocoa
stamped the ornament hangers in black
stamped the ornaments with Adirondack ink
masked the ornaments using Eclipse masking tape
stamped the pine branches using Palette ink
uncovered the masked images
colored in the ornaments with a Copic Marker
stamped the sentiment in Adirondack ink
added my bow & this baby was done

Gorgeous Latisha! Love the colours and that you weren't afraid to cut off a portion of the image to keep it in balance. I always struggle with that!
