Release day at Stamping Bella!

Good morning!

It's finally release day at Stamping Bella and all 28 of the new holiday sets are now available for purchase... yeah! My card today features the sweet Uptown Winter Family and Dog paired with one of my go-to favorites, the Sketchy Corner Backdrop. I could just envision them strolling through the brightly lit city streets, checking out all of the Christmas window displays as the snow gently falls around them. I used a lot of the traditional reds and greens in their clothing and kept the background soft and neutral so that they would be the stars of the show. The sentiment is from the older Snuggle Weather Sentiment set and I masked off the space around it before stamping the backdrop so that when I colored in the scene I could make it look like a banner attached to the light post.

Alrighty then, have fun shopping and I will see ya again tomorrow!  :)
