For my card I pulled out the new Pinecone Christmas set and used the pine cone imagery to make a wreath. To make the pine cones look snowy, I stamped them in brown sugar and then highlighted with a white chalk paint marker. Used the same marker for the dots around the edge of my early espresso circle mat.
The poinsettia is stamped in black and cut with the coordinating Poinsettia Pinecones Die Set, then I colored by stamping the solid flower in blush blossom and the leaves in mossy meadow. For the highlighting, I brushed some strawberry slush marker on the solid flower stamp and stamped it again. The papers I used are from an old Eskimo Kisses BasicGrey pad and I finished with a bit of brown burlap ribbon and some rhinestones.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous start to your week. Be sure to check out the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other gals have created with the sketch!
