Paper Players Challenge 68

A dear friend loaned me a number of Christmas stamps, so I could play around with them and come up with some designs for our monthly card club meetings. This card came together very naturally for the Paper Players challenge 68, which was to make a Christmas card with red and green, and to keep it clean and simple. Thanks to my club member for her helpful suggestion! I used a tecnnique I haven't used in years - watercolor and chalk. I cut a piece of watercolor paper, stamped the image in black, then used my waterbrush and chalk palette to brush on the colors. I finished it off with gold stickles for a little bling. Gotta have bling. Very easy and quick.

Thanks for looking!
