Celebrate the Season

I'm participating in the Power Poppy Bits & Pieces Challenge and the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

Stampin Up colors for CC:
Blushing Bride
So Saffron
Pear Pizazz

The Power Poppy Bits & Pieces challenge is to use only part of an image.  I've been waiting all year to ink up this sweet vintage image and I thought it would be perfect for the color challenge as a non traditional Christmas card. I heat embossed the main image, as well as the background flowers and watercolored with Stampin Up markers. I sponged the layers, as well as a tag with the greeting, and added a bit of holly and a seam binding bow.

Sequins and dry embossing.

Magnolia lace border and sponged tag with holly.

  1. Ohhhhh, you did an amazing job on this! Big WOW! Love how you made a whole floral background. Just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing in our Bits and Pieces challenge at Power Poppy!

  2. Oh, DJ! This is absolutely gorgeous, and I just LOVE that you've used this image for your background designer paper (talk about personalized and delightful paper - it's stunning!). And I love the layout and the beautiful color combination. Your coloring is beautifully soft and elegant, and you know (hehe) how much I love your "DJ" ribbons!! Absolutely stunning (and like Leslie said) a big WOW card! Hugs!

  3. P. S. And I forgot that I love the inside too! Hugs!
