PS SPARKS Challenge

Some new Paper Smooches goodies showed up on my door yesterday, and I actually blame my bff, Christi, for this last purchase.  She's created some great stuff with this Santa Paws set, and so naturally I fell in love and 'needed' it.  

As usual the challenge over at the PS SPARKS blog is an inspiration. . .and a beautiful one at that.

I wanted to use my new set along with the inspiration, so I took the blues and the white from the above inspiration and came up with this:

Stamps:  Santa Paws
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  MME 12 Days of Christmas, CDS Cottonball White, blue from TE Card Kit
Copics:  BG10, BG13, BG15, YR00, E11, E50, C1
Accessories:  blue Baker's Twine, foam tape, blue dew drops, corner rounder

I framed up the background paper with the white, and added just a touch of the darker blue.  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  Why don't you try your hand at the challenge?
