Merry Christmas

Today's card was created using the Viva la Verve September Week 2 sketch.

I followed the sketch fairly closely, stamping the poinsettia from the Pinecone Christmas set onto a Neenah cardstock cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities and then coloring with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a circle cut with an MFT pierced die using Versamark ink that I heat embossed with white embossing powder. All the patterned papers came from the new My Mind's Eye Cozy Christmas pad. I love it when the new Christmas papers are released early. The image panel was attached with craft foam for some extra dimension and I added Xmas Red Ranger Stickles for some glittery goodness and a trio of small pearls in the flower center. A couple of red pearls finished it up.
