For my card today... I used the Poinsettia Wreath.  The sentiment is from the Cardinal Ornament stamp set.



For my card today... I used the Poinsettia Wreath.  The sentiment is from the Cardinal Ornament stamp set.  The image is colored with copics.  The poinsettias are cut out and layered to add dimension and texture.  The background panel is dry embossed with  a Poinsettia embossing folder and inked with golden embossing powder.  The image is cut out using the Scalloped Circles from Spellbinders and layered on Labels One (Spellbinders).  The card frame is Fancy Labels One.  The bow is May Arts Burgundy Silk.


I hope you are somehow inspired by my creation !  If you did not see my sneak peek earlier,  I'll just show you that again, which was made using the Sparkling Snowflakes and Snowflake Background.




Here are the sets I spotlighted today:


Card 1:




Card 2:


Snowflake background



Thanks so much for visiting today!  To continue on the hop, your next stop is the fabulous
Sandee!!

Joanne Lowe said...

I loved, loved, LOVED that poinsettia card with the new wreath!!! The coloring on that wreath was unbelievable--so detailed and realistic (way beyond what I could do--may be someday...), and I loved all of the popped up layers of the poinsettias, and all of the card's layers. As well, that silk burgundy ribbon was the crowning touch, lovely!!! You totally took my breath away, now THAT is beauty!!! Your sneak peek snowflake card was lovely too.

Blessings,

Joanne
