FMS #165 & SSS ~ Merry & Bright!

Hi! I finally got my card finished, took three tries!! The first one was just plain old ugly, the second I smeared the ink, then I finally changed gears all together and came up with this one. I'm entering it at Freshly Made Sketches. I really liked Cindy's sketch and wanted to give it a go! Simon Says Stamp has a Christmas Holiday challenge, so I'm playing along there too!


I started with the splatter portion of the sketch using the fun star splatters from the Precious Remembrance Shop Journey stamp set. I wanted this to be a Christmas card so I switched out the heart for a TDD ornament. My PTI sentiment was a survivor from the first two messed up cards!! Not wanting it to go to waste, I added it here then used some new Snowflakes Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh ~ love them!! 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your Friday! ~Lisa

Your card is so pretty. Definitely worth three tries. I have to admit that it has happened to me more often than I would like--usually on something that is supposed to be quick and easy, and then I go on and botch it repeatedly.
