sending holiday cheer 33

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 23, 2017 @ 9:32 PM | ,

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a card which features a glitter mat.
I combined a few of my original PTI stamps from years ago and stamped a polka dot gift box then topped with a silver heat embossed bow which is from the PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set which I then matted on a silver glitter die cut mat:
Up next, is a 12" x 12" oil painting featuring an Asian vase and oranges:
I'm entering the card in the following challenges: The Merry Monday card challenge where the theme is "add a gift to your Christmas card":
for colour inspiration, the Sketch Saturday sketch challenge:
and for colour inspiration, the Just Add Ink challenge:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
