LPS Monday: Get Embellished!

Hello there friends...I can't believe how fast this weekend went!   It's kind of a bittersweet Monday here in our neck of the woods.  The kids have been on "Fall Break" for 2 weeks so today is their 1st day back to school.  I'm a little bit relieved and a little sad as two weeks is a long time to get used to doing fun things, sleeping in , etc.  So BACK to the grindstone, but will also be nice to have some extra time to do some cleaning, shopping, and STAMPING!


Today it's time for another LPS Monday challenge from Little Paper Shop!   Julia whipped up this AWESOME sketch for us this week and there is plenty of opportunity to "get embellished!"

Here is my sample.  I used Prism Cardstock from Taylored Expressions, which has quickly become my favorite to buy. I just love the texture and the elegant look and feel it has to it.  Also from Taylored Expressions that I am having a SUPER fun time playing around with is this Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge.  It's in the Christmas Key Ingredients, also used to make this card (which I'm sure you know by now that Jolly by Golly is my FAVE holiday DP from Cosmo Cricket!), and Taylor also sells it by the jar so I picked up another color :0 )  Hard to resist this fun stuff!


We would LOVE to see what you do with this week's sketch and there is a PRIZE as always!  ONE lucky winner will be drawn to receive the Merry and Bright set, newly released from Little Paper Shop!  Be sure to link your card to the LPS blog on this week's post to be entered to win!


See you tomorrow, everyone!
