Red Carpet Studio Challenge

Happy Sunday!
It's time for another Red Carpet Studio Challenge
Our theme is.............
"The Nutcracker"
Use ribbon and lace on your project.
I enjoyed this challenge so very much.  Nutcrackers are my favorite thing!!  I have over 30 of them...really!   And I add more and more each year. 
I started with Nutcracker stamp from the Unity Stamp Co.  I LOVE this little you may have guessed.  :-D    I colored him the traditional green, red, and gold.  (Copics: R12, R14, R20, R39, R46, E00, E11, E50, G12, G14, G17, Y28, N1, N3, N5, 110, 0)
 Since the Xpress Card I used is a bright white, I distressed the card with Antique Linen Distress Ink after I colored the stamp. 
The papers are from an Old World Christmas pad from Hobby Lobby.  My lace is from Hero Arts and my ribbon is from Lovebug Creations.  I added some pop candy and stickled them up with Candy Cane Stickles.  To add a bit of pazzaz, a mistletoe brad. 
Isn't such a perfect card for the challenge?  I think so.  :-)
We would love to see what you create.  Be sure to link up your creation here.

  1. Hi. Saw this on unity and had to tell you how pretty it is. The nutcracker is colored so beautifully. The background paper ( love Hobby Lobby for paper) is perfect as is the lace and ribbon. Thanks for sharing.
