Blessed Christmas!

This card is for today's SCS Sketch Challenge(SC255)! Thanks Roxie and Chat for a great sketch. It is also for yesterday's SCS Color Challenge(CC245)! Always Real Chocolate! What can I say? I really love these colors!

I am using one of ODBD new releases this month called Blessed Christmas. For this image I pretty much used my pure poppy ink pad to the poinsettia and my new leaf ink spot to the ivory leaves and some of the tips of the poinsettia. I love this noncolored rocked and rolled look.

I softened up the ivory cardstock a bit with some ranger antique linen ink. I added my bow, button, gold pearls, and gold curly que to finish my card.

Since the Martha Stewart new border punches came out, I have been trying to get a few. I have had this one a few weeks and could not figure out how to use it for it to look right on my card. I ended up layer two sections opposite each other so I have this wonderful opened scalloped edge of the top and bottom. Totally love it this way!

I have been having some blog issues. It seems my blog page does not load correctly and some people are not able to comment if and when it does load. I am trying to fix this. Thanks so much for stopping by!
