Watercolor Winter

Mary Jo had such a GREAT sketch this week for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge.  I FINALLY had the chance to take my idea and get it done!

My friend Connie got me hooked on the Watercolor Winter set and it is just such a nice one.  The base of my card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla, layered to Lucky Limeade and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I cut out 5 different prints using the Largest Bitty Banner Framelit in patterns from the Festive paper pack and then added these to the card front.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped the greeting using Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler, layered onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the outline of the poinsettia twice in Basic Black on Very Vanilla, stamped the insid eof one with Riding Hood Red and the other with Lucky Limeade, cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I colored some of the very smaller pearls using my Gold Glimmer Pen.  I added some to the center of the poinsettia and then below the word Christmas.
