It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:
I keep coming back to the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. It's definitely my favourite of this year's Christmas Papers. I love all the soft shades of greens and browns in it. I'm planning on using it for my own Christmas cards this year...which I really need to get cracking on!!
For this card, the only thing I've stamped is the sentiment (from the Best Year stamp set)
Apart from the fussy cutting, this was a really quick card to put together. Just as well I enjoy cutting things out! I gave the Poinsettia some extra depth by cutting out an extra centre and popping it up on dimensionals.
I added a few finishing touches to take this card to the next level - I used my Wink of Stella to give the petals a subtle shimmer, I used Shimmery Crystal Effects on the stamens, and added a few of my fave Elegant Faceted Gems too.
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!
