Believe Poinsettia

Hi everyone,

Did you have a nice weekend?  Mine was rather exciting as I picked up my new SUV on Saturday.  I ordered it in October and it finally arrived.  So many new buttons to play with!   

Yesterday I couldn't resist pulling out my Memory Box Believe Poinsettia stamp.  I don't think I even used it last year - poor neglected stamp  :-(

I stamped the image in StazOn Timber Brown on a piece of Shimmery White paper cut from a Labels Eight #5 die.  I stamped it again on Shimmery White and cut out the poinsettia.  Everything was colored with Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol.  The flower was popped up for dimension.  A few light rose Swarovski crystals sparkle in the center.

The focal image was mounted to a Decorative Labels Eight cut from Pretty in Pink paper.  The matting is parchment sand paper. 

The inside sentiment was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown.  Scrolls were stamped in VersaMark Dazzle on the pink paper.

I hope you are enjoying all that the holiday season has to offer.  I enjoy crafting this time of year.  We are supposed to be very cold this week so hot cocoa is on the agenda.

Hello Donna, haven’t been here for a while, so many blogs to read, so little time! What a lovely card you have made this time – well, I love all your cards! Congratulations on your new car, nothing like a brand new car with the factory smell still in the seats :-) I have seen on the news about your cold weather, over here in London we are still having rather warm autumn weather and no frost yet. Definitely no white Christmas for us.
