Just Under the Wire!

Whew! I'm posting this a week late for the MMSC27 but I have until midnight to get this posted. There's already a MMSC28 posted for this week, but I'll hopefully get to that a little later.
I used this gorgeous North Woods image, stamping it with Versafine Onyx Black and embossing it with clear ep before coloring it with Tombows. It's matted with Ruby Red cardstock. I used the Fleur de lis Pendant die on turquoise cardstock for the corner accents, and a MS arch lattice punch for the lower border. On the white cardstock base, I went around the edges with a gold deco pen, and stamped the Verve Christmas Poinsettia with versamark and embossed with gold jewel ep. The bottom accent was done with a Blossom Nestie in turquoise and embossed gold, and a punched poinsettia (punch by Carl) that was dotted with a gold deco pen. I added some hunter green ferns punched with a MS pine bough branch and added a topaz gemstone brad. The sentiment (by Verve) was done on PTI white, stamped in versafine onyx black and edged with a gold deco pen. For a final touch, I dotted the center of the flowers with yellow stickles and added a touch of silver deco pen to the ribbon on the flower pot.
Now I need to get busy and play catch-up! I was nursing a tender hand last week, but I'm feeling better now and hopefully I can catch up on some of my lost challenges! Christmas is coming!!!
Take care, and have a wonderful Tuesday!
