Don't you just wish you were sitting at this table??? I do! Especially since there is snow on the ground here and it is so very cold. Brrr!
This week's Inspiration Challenge from Beate is the aforementioned patio scene from Martha Stewart. I just loved the rich earthy colors and used them on my card. My very wintry card. :)
To see more beautiful samples check out the blogs of fellow Inspiration Team members: Jennifer, Susan, Silke, Dawn and Charmaine. Make sure to visit Beate's blog for the full details and to see her sample!
For my card I used the Holiday Lineup stamp set from SU! and paired it with a sentiment from the Winter Schminter cling set from Whipper Snapper. Hee hee... these reindeer crack me up and I thought that sentiment added a bit of additional humor. That there is one bee-u-ti-ful deer with his bright spotlight of a nose! :)
Quickie notes: the reindeer were stamped in Black StazOn and watercolored with an AquaPainter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I then outlined the image with a W2 Copic marker and added some subtle shimmer to the red nose with a Clear Copic Spica pen.
