Christmas scraps

The current sketch at Card Patterns (#136) is a perfect way to use up scraps of designer paper to color block the background layer. I pulled out a stack of Hobby Lobby Christmas papers to make this card.
I don't usually put things at an angle but I like the effect it has on this sketch.
I hope the flower looks like a poinsettia to you -- I improvised it by tracing around the red felt flower on green card stock and cutting out the leaves, then finding a little yellow flower to be the center part of the poinsettia.
Stamps of unknown origin (possibly Hero Arts or Inkadinkado).   SU Forest Foliage and Colorbox Lipstick Red chalk inks. Spica pen used on all the stars to add a little glitter that doesn't show in the photo.  Center panel popped up on popdots.
That's 1 Christmas card done, in possibly one of my earliest starts ever.

  1. This is beautiful! Love the contrast & the traditional Christmas colors you used. Those felt flowers added such great accent to your card. Thanks for playing along with us at Card Patterns.
