FMS #46: Evergreen

Happy Wednesday! The Holiday Mini is finally here, so I thought I would work this week's sketch with one of the new Christmas sets, Evergreen.
Love, love, LOVE this new set! The images are simple and elegant and will make some classy Christmas cards. Here I stamped the solid tree image with Midnight Muse and then stamped the outline image with Platinum Shimmer Paint. It looks so shiny and pretty - I don't think the picture really does it justice.
I finished the card off with some Silver Glimmer Paper and an embossed panel using the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder. I hope you get a chance to stop over at the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the other lovely works of inspiration from our design team members. Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Evergreen, Greetings of the Season
Paper: Midnight Muse, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Silver Shimmer Paper
Ink: Midnight Muse, Basic Gray, VersaMark
Accessories: Platinum Shimmer Paint, Whisper White taffeta ribbon, Neutrals Designer Buttons, Big Shot, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, heat tool, silver embossing powder
