Make it Merry & Bright

I love this sweet little tree from the Inkadinkado set Pattern Play Holiday. I just stamped it with Black Onyx (Versafine) onto Neenah Solar White and colored it with copics. I added a bit of sparkle with a Quickie Glue Pen, and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. I then stamped the snowflakes with White Craft Ink (SU!) onto Stormy Light Prismatics for the bg. The sentiment is from the JustRite set A Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers.

I used Mercy's sketch #46, found HERE, for inspiration.

I have a sneak peek of JustRite Images to share with you...Michelle ~ Stamper's Dream ~ will be getting them in her store Mid November. They're super charming!! LOVE the squares. Yep, I said squares.
They even have come up with some more circle frames and fonts. Here's a peek at the borders.

This is so soft and pretty. I love that tree too. It reminds me of my first Christmas tree after being on my own. Only I think this one is more lush and a wee bit taller:)
