A new challenge starts today over at The Cheerful Stamp Pad. For the next TWO weeks it is "Let's Decorate or Embellish IT". The sponsor is Floppy Latte Designs. This is an oldie I had in my files from months back. It really isn't a Christmas image at all, but I turned it into a pretty Christmas card. I did alter the image by cutting off the leaves and adding holly, but the flower and swirls are original. I printed multi prints and layered the flower making it more poinsettia style. The flower is mounted on an embossed, pearlescent paper, then on dark green before adding to the card base, same with the sentiment. I added red rhinestones to the holly leaves, silver beads to the center of the flower and a holly branch to the bow. The sheer red ribbon (not the bow) was coated with clear sugar dust and white glitter.
Here is the image I started with.
I know there is a holiday this week (here in the States) but there is PLENTY of time to join this challenge.
Love to read your comments, but I'm on a holiday week, so it will be next week before I can get back to you.
