Great Tidings

I finally have time to play and design my own cards, so with Christmas right around the corner you'll be seeing a lot of holiday themed cards on my blog.  This card features one of the newer Kraftin' Kimmie images by artist Annie Rodrigue entitled " Elysia Angel".  She was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Xpress It paper, and colored with Copics.  After fussy cutting the image, I mounted it on to a Spellbinders Parisan motif die cut from a gorgeous gold paper, then popped up the die and image, using My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas designer paper as the background.  The ribbon and poinsettia embellishment are from a big box craft store, and the sentiment was borrowed from a good friends collection of stamps.

I am entering this card into the following:
2 Sisters Challenge - #65 Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - #106 Christmas Traditions
Top Tip Tuesday - #59 Anything Christmas
Make My Monday - #23 Christmas - Vintage/Traditional
