Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges

I have been on a stamping marathon. 11 cards in a 24 hour span...YIKES! All of the cards I made were for the Verve Stamps Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges.
The card I'm sharing today is their AVS02 sketch. I bought some new Christmas stamps recently so I thought I would get them inked up right away.
Sorry for the weird photo angle, the sunlight would not cooperate with me today.
For this card I stamped my Christmas sentiment with Palette ink and then I carefully painted over it with Olive Green Shimmerz paint. It gives it a really great shimmery look. I also painted the green cardstock layers with the same Olive Green Shimmerz. If you haven't tried this stuff out yet, I highly recommend it! I think I used it on 6 of the 11 cards I made these past 2 days.

Supplies used: Sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado, Non-SU cardstock, Basic Grey DP, Shimmerz Olive Green paint, misc ribbon, misc self adhesive gems.

I hope you all had a great start to your week! Thanks for stopping by!
