It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

A warm hello to you today.  Today I am going to follow along with the "Non Traditional Christmas Colors" challenge theme. The traditional colors are always so beautiful but I am finding the non traditional colors can make striking cards too and people receiving them  think they are beautiful also. So go out of the box and try some new colors this year.

I always liked the Christmas song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and thought this would be perfect to use with the Cheery Lynn Designs  Clock w/Angel Wing.  So I made that my focal point of this card. I started the base by layering the Coved Rectangle - Scalloped LG Stackers and the Coved  Rectangle-Classic LG  Stackers .  I clock design on the background was made by inking up the Clocks  Embossing  Plate with black and embossing the Coved Rectangle-Classic  LG Stackers.


I place the Clock w/Angel Wing  a bit off the side of the card and trimmed it. The sentiment was printed on the computer then cut out with the one of the Circle- Scalloped LG Stackers .

This flower arrangement was created using the Poinsettia Strip  , Poinsettia Strip  , Pine Branches  , and the Flourish #10 . For the poinsettias I spritzed them with goosebumps and then inked them with distress ink. So any where the goosebumps spray is the ink won't cover giving it the speckled effect. I then shaped them with a stylus and foam mat. Pearls were added to the center of the poinsettias.

Thanks so much for joining me today and for the comments that were left on my last post. You still have a bit of time left yet to join this weeks  Cheery Lynn Designs challenge
