Here's my card for the MMSC#20. I went to some lengths to stamp the panel beneath the poinsettias and then covered it up with the flowers.....DUH!! I used Vintage Cream and stamped it with the Linen backgrounder in Baja Breeze, and then stamped it with the snowflake spot, also in Baja Breeze. I couldn't find an image I was happy with so I just used the flowers from MM with Vanilla HPH brads. All the dsp is Figgy Pudding by BG and the ribbons are artichoke and cranberry. The sentiment panel was also stamped with Linen in Baja Breeze and then with Cranberry Crisp, and some Vanilla HPH for a frame. The corner accents were done with a Quickutz die. I added a few dewdrops for accents, and they're all blue in spite of one appearing to be purple. The color of the dsp underneath makes it appear other than what it is.
I hope you're enjoying your Wednesday so far. Make it a great day!!
