Just a quick post to link up to the current Festive Friday challenge. They've got a colour challenge this time that is just so pretty! Check it out...
Lovely isn't it? So I decided to break out a stamp I hadn't inked up yet. It's a jumbo cling stamp by Stampendous. I found this set at Michaels after Christmas on clearance. You can still get it from Stampendous though. Here's the card.
I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir markers keeping it light. I added some silver glitter to the stamen of the flower. Then I fussy cut it out and adhered it to a white panel with foam dots. I matted this on silver paper and attached the ribbon. The ribbon was another purchase from Michaels clearance after Christmas. :-). Glued one of my dollar store sequins to the bow. Stamped the sentiment (Fiskars, Simple Expressions set) in black StazOn. Then attached to a light pink card base.
I really love how this turned out. I just adore that poinsettia stamp. I think I'll also link this up to Always Playing With Paper's, Merry Mondays, Anything Goes challenge. :-)
***UPDATE*** I'm going to link this up at Moxie Fab World and their Holiday Cards challenge. It's a challenge to celebrate the new Holiday Cards and More magazine by PaperCrafts. :-)
Have a fantastic day!
