Warmth and Wonder for Paper Players #169

Hello there! Long time no blog, eh? After a couple of weeks off from the *blog-o-sphere*, I am back with my card for the Paper Players challenge this week. I am hosting this week and I created this sketch to try out. I hope you like my sketch and will join us for the challenge. 
I used the Warmth and Wonder Hostess set from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog for the stamped image and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The little tree is so simple yet perfect for holiday cards. I added some sparkle to the "ornaments using Dazzling Details glitter glue. The little trio of banners are washi tape attached to some Crumb Cake card stock. The washi tape would have shown the textured background if I just stuck it to the card. I have a washi tape obsession right now. Anyone else? I really need an intervention to stop buying so much. There are just so many fun patterns out there, it's hard not to try to buy it all. Ha! 
Before I go, I will share our new "house guest" with you. This is our newest foster Gidget. She is a little Brussels Griffon mix and almost 2 years old. Look at that under bite! She is an absolute doll and will be headed to Colorado in mid-November. 
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, November 1st, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.
