CSS Alumni Challenge Blog Hop

Wow, here we are for another amazing Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop.  This time, we were given a great sketch to work with.  I am not sure why I chose to go with a Christmas theme as I am usually the last one to start thinking about making Christmas cards.  Maybe this year, I will get them done early! 

You should have come here from Karen's blog.  If not, you will want to go back and check it out.  Eye candy for sure!

I stamped the poinsettia from the GKD Year of Flowers set two times in Rich Cocoa Memento ink on PL Ivory cardstock.  The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out and layered for a 3D effect.  The center of the flower was embellished with a dollop of Glossy Accents that was covered with gold ultrafine glitter. 

I cut the half circles out of the top panels with my Large and Small Circle Nestabilities dies.  The card was finished off with some GKD Ivory ribbon and some MS Branch punchies.  I won't keep you any longer, so I am sending you on to Melissa's awesome blog for another treat!
