Merry Christmas - Christmas Card Challenges #17

Good morning friends.  It is Sunday and time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  It is "Anything Goes"  this week and I am happy to share my card with you.

I used the sketch from Viva la Verve March Week 1 for my card.  

The card base is SU Cherry Cobbler, the mats are Basic Black, and the white is X-Press It Blending Card.  The DSP is from Teresa Collins Santa's List 6x6 pad.  The large white panel is embossed with Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons EF.  I used Verve's Light My World (candle & sentiment) and Pinecone Christmas (poinsettia), stamped in Mememto Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I fussy cut the Poinsettia and used MFT Pierced Circle die for the candle image.  I inked the edges with SU Crumb Cake before removing the die.  The mat is cut with MFT Circle Stax 2 die.  The banner and flower are mounted with foam tape.  I added rhinestones to the center of each flower.  That's it for my card.  

You need to check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates at Christmas Card Challenges.  I hope you will play along with us this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
