JOY


Print

PrintQuick post as today's the day my sister & BIL come to visit! Of course I'm still not ready--LOL! My card combines the MFT sketch & color challenges & I used my new poinsettia die.  I had my eye on it last year & finally included it in an order when MFT had a sale earlier this year.  I used scraps of red, green & blue that were as close as I could get to the color combo. Have to say I like them together. VersaMagic Red Magic matched the red so I used it to ink the stencil I made from the Dispersed Dots die for one panel.  The other one is stamped & embossed with 2 tiny snowflakes in one of their older Christmas sets.  The embossing powder has a lovely sparkle you can't see in the picture.  
The sentiment is from the same set & I added Stickles to it & the poinsettia center. There's some foam tape used, but it's still pretty flat to mail. The scraps let me also enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for stopping by--I love reading your comments.
Edited to add: Joining in the shine challenge at Inkspirational since glitter shines, right?
