Did you enjoy the hop! It was incredible...
this card is done for two challenges. I belong to the DESIGNING DIVA's (a wonderful, talented group of ladies) and we have secret sister challenges. This card will be my "non-traditional" Christmas card that will go to my secret sister...hope she likes it! and the second challenge is this week's color challenge at STV to use purple, black, gold and can add white or ivory.
LOVE Melanie's newest release "Festive Frame" and since I am her Guest Designer this month...have been knocking cards out with it...(you know I go ballistic over stamps I love)..but still pacing myself in showing them to you LOL
This is done by stampin the poinsettias onto designer paper (I believe this was some of SU's) and layering them. The center one was stamped several times on the front and back of the coordinating paper and pieced to make one flower. Then shaded wiith Copics. Pieced the two pinecones that were stamped onto the gold, ran the Violet cs through the Candy Cane CB folder, matted onto black and matted again onto gold. Added gold mini pearls and gold stickles....other little details...card done!
Now, surely there are pretty purple poinsettias out there somewhere LOL
Blessings to you and thanks for popping in!
