ICSketches #97 - and more Christmas cards

This week over at ICS the designers were sponsored with images from DZ Doodles.
I am particularly pleased with finally putting my MM Slice to work here - 
I cut 2 triangular photo corners and 2 scalloped squares - 
nothing mind boggling at all - but it sure feels good to use a tool
 that I had allowed to be a white elephant for nearly a year !  
I have been cutting words and frames since creating this card . ;) 
This is the also the first card actually
 where I went to town with the Marvy Liquid Applique . lol.

This card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking Class -
Love how easy this background was created. 
Smoosh Broken China heavily on a piece of white cardstock,
then pounce 3 colors of Perfect Pearls with a brush on the wet ink -
I used Gold, Pink & Blue powders.
Really easy & fun ! 

Other supplies : 
Such Sweet Tierney's snowflake chipboard button,
CC's Mitten Weather pps, 
EK Success border punch, 
Prima bling center, 
MM Glittered foam cardinal.

And another Echo Park Papers Everybody Loves Christmas card . ;)
