Pines & Poinsettias

This will be a VERY quick post!  I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!  Again just barely getting it done before the challenge closed!  I don't know where last week went…it flew by!

 

 

My card uses Pines & Poinsettias…gearing up for the holiday season!

 


 

The base of the card is Wild Wasabi, I layered on Real Red that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Snow Frost Impressions Folder.  On that I added a strip of Holly Berry Designer Paper and rounded the corners.  I cut a 3" Circle from the Die in Very Vanilla and stamped the French Script Background in So Saffron.  I used my Real Red and Wild Wasabi Markers to ink up the flower image from Pines & Poinsettias stamp set and stamped over top of the French Script.  I layered the 3" circle on the Scallop Duo Diecut of Wild Wasabi and placed it on front.  Finally, I added Joy at Christmas from Perfect Punches, stamping in Early Espresso on Wild Wasabi and punching with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.

 

Well..anyway…not sure I'm in LOVE with this card, but it does work with the sketch!  lol!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!!

So bright and pretty!!!!    That new snow flake embossing folder is amazing- it's on it's way to my house and I'll have it tomorrow afternoon….looks like we can use that one for other than just The Holidays….
TFS!
