Noel

Talk about cutting it close!!!  All week I have had in mind to get my card done for the Weekly Wednesday Challenge over at All That Scraps.  I don't like to miss a challenge over there!!  You all know how much I love my CC Designs stamps!!!  What could be easier than using Christmas Flowers?  And yet I didn't get it done until the last possible day.  I used for the first time one of the Sweet November Sprites, this one is Penelope. Isn't she darling?
The background paper is some from my Christmas stash that I bought a couple of years ago on clearance from Basic Grey. I bought so much of it!!!  I am really hoping to find all that yummy Echo Park papers on clearance this year!!!
I did use a touch of it to mount the embossed green cardstock that I wrapped that large white sheer ribbon around.  I had to add a touch of red!! I used a scribbles paint around her head wrap and muff.
The Noel stamp is from AmyR, don't you just love her sentiment stamps?  I do!! I have 2 sets that I am going to be ordering in January once the holidays are over.   And of course you know I will be showing you the inside of my card. You know it doesn't have to be fancy, just a little border punched paper gives it a finishing touch. This punch is from Recollections I found at Michaels.  I also used a Martha Stewart branch punch to add some branches to the Poinsettias from Making Memories.  

I didn't have to use a pile of copics on this image, just some of my faves!!!
