LPS Monday: Twinkling Topiary


Hello everyone and Happy Monday!

We had a nice, relaxing weekend I must say. Those don't happen too often so I was very thankful for that...speaking of which, it's Thanksgiving week and the kiddos are off school all this week, so we are keeping busy doing lots of arts and crafts! That means you can expect a few cards from me this week LOL ;)

Today is Little Paper Shop Monday, and I have a card to show you that I made using the beautiful Topiary set. This set is so great-not only is it adorable and versatile for SO many uses, but it's extremely affordable too! It's a really great deal and perfect for year round use...including your holiday cards!

I dressed up today's card with a healthy dose of bling (aren't you surprised? LOL). After coloring with my Copics, I glazed the entire topiary with some Diamond Stickles and then after it dried I gave it the finishing touches with some tiny red pearls.

Well, I hope to be back later with the Mojo Monday card from this week. It's really rare that I've been able to get sketch cards done on the same day so that's my goal for today. Funny, I know...but I'm always in competition w/ myself, you know? Keeps me on my toes :)

Hope to see you back here later today! Hugs,

RECIPE: True Thyme and Bazzill Red, BG Wassail DP, Papertrey Vintage Cream CS

Stamps: Topiary by The Little Paper Shop, sentiment from Flourished Dove set by The Little Paper Shop
Ink: Always Artichoke, Dark Chocolate Palette
Accessories: Copics, Glitter Brads from DCWV, Pearls, Pure Poppy Twill by Papertrey
