CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Carolina at Stamp TV invited us to participate in a Blog Hop.  So if you have just come from Jen Charboneau's blog, then you are right on target.  Didn't you just love that stocking!

With just a few Christmas cards left to be made, I'm taking every opportunity I can to get them done so this one is one of the last ones.

Here is our inspiration.  The sketch is one of Melissa Cash's. 
Here is my card:
I used Gina K Designs, Pure Luxury White, Pure Luxury Lipstick Red card stocks, the stamp I used was Heirloom Ornament, the poinsettias are flocked and the tiny gold brads are from Gina K, other elements are the gold cardstock, a red Copic marker and some gold embossing powder for the sentiment.

Now you have seen my card take a look at Karen Knegten, she always has wonderful projects and I know you will just love what she has done.  After you finish looking at the other designers, leave a comment at Stamp TV.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card.  Have a HAPPY stamping day!
