Christmas tree helpers

For this card I wanted to try out my new stamp from Big Celebrations and thought it went well with this saying stamp from Glad Tidings. I wanted to use more contemperary colors and since Old Olive is my favorite green, I had to find something to go with it. All the coloring was done with markers and the gold highlights visible in the picture are done with a Sakura stardust glitter pen. I also used eyelets over the ornaments, mostly just because I'd gotten my new Crop-a-dile and wanted to try it out. I love it! It was a tool that's totally worth the money. I had a whole box full of eyelets in assorted finishes that I hadn't touched in a long time because the hammering method isn't a good one for me because my stamp desk has a glass table top! I also love that the Crop-a-dile is SILENT, for when I get on a stamping roll and am up in the middle of the night.
