A Challenge from The Paper Players

Today's challenge at The Paper Players is a color challenge using the colors Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Mossy Meadow.   I purchased the shadow box a few days ago and have been itching to get back into crafting!  Today's challenge was the perfect invitation for me to get started!

The first step was to color the wooden letters and applying the Distress Stickles to each letter.   It takes several hours for the stickles to dry, but I really love the extra sparkle they give to the project!  I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and a sponge to give a vintage look to all of the paper pieces before adhering them into the box and onto the card stock.  For a little extra bling, I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the small evergreen tree as well as a few spritzes of Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

Here is my finished product!  I plan to make several more of these as Christmas gifts.  They don't take long to create once the design and layout have been finalized.
