ODBDSLC217 - Holiday Card Part 2

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to make a holiday card.  Join us here for all of the details.

For my second holiday card I started with wonderful DP from the new ODBD Christmas Collection and gave it some distressing.  The star bouquet in the top corner was made with ODBD Sparkling Stars, which were also distressed and sponged and I intertwined a flourish.  The Wisemen image was heat embossed and colored with SU markers and layered on a scalloped oval SB die with corregated cardstock and a lace border.  I made a pastel poinsettia to go with the dp by cutting out the poinsettias in cream cardstock and sponging them with ink and adding glitter glue to the center.

ODBD Stamps Used:  We Three Kings
ODBD Papers Used: Christmas Collection 2014

Other Supplies: Spellbinder scalloped oval, foam tape,  embossing folders, heat embossing, Stampin Up markers, glitter glue, water pen.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
