Merry Monday #58 - The Magic of Christmas

Here is my card for this week's Merry Monday #58 sketch challenge.  Click the link and check it out.

For my card I used some older Basic Grey paper from the Wassail 6x6 pad.  I thought the presents in the background paper tied in with the sentiment.  The Magic of Christmas really is in HIS presence. 

The sentiment is from Verve's Peace On Earth Set, stamped with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of DSP.  I used a Zig Black pen and ruler to draw the lines around the edges. This panel is mounted with foam tape. The poinsettia is from Verve's Poinsettia Christmas.  It is a 2 stamp image and I stamped the outline and flower in SU Cherry Cobler ink and cut it out.  I went over the outline with a Cherry Cobler marker for a little more definitition.  I added some Queen & Co. Sunflower Yellow Pearls to the center of the poinsettia.  I glued the top half only of the poinsettia to the entiment panel. 

The 3 flag banners are cut with a MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die from the DSP. 

That is my card.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment.
