And the Winner is.......

Hello everyone!!! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to face another Monday!! I have been looking forward to this Monday because I get to announce the winner of my Taylored Expressions Release Week giveaway contest!!! I had asked what your favorite Christmas memory was....Random.org picked Sharon D. who said:

"I like how you made the shadows on the snowman card. Really makes it stand out...... My favorite Christmas memory is when my dad left us clues to follow & at the end we found a ping pong table for the family. Only time he did anything like that".

Sharon, please let me know how I can contact you and I will give you the info you need to collect your 100 Taylored Expressions Crafty Points that can be applied to your next TE order...how cool is that!!! Congrats!!!

I have a Christmas Card to share with you today...Christmas will be here before we know it!! If I start now I just might be ready by the 25th!!!



The poinsettias and leaves from the Taylored Expressions Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set were stamped with Versamark onto TE Premium Watercolor Paper and embossed with gold embossing powder. They were then watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens. The poinsettias and leaves were all fussy cut and the middle poinsettia was layered with foam tape.



The background was cut with the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate...one was cut out of TE Premium Watercolor Paper and one out of Metallic Neutrals - gold. The inside piece of the watercolor diecut was watercolored with a Zig Clean Color watercolor pen and the sentiment from the Rejoice stamp set was stamped with Strawberry Milkshake ink. The watercolored diecut was adhered inside the outer gold diecut and adhered to the cardbase. 

The gold twine was adhered to the side of the sentiment layer and then the poinsettias were popped up over the twine. The pearls for the flower centers and the TE Snow Flurries Sequin Mix finish it off. 

Thanks so much for stopping by..... have a great and congrats again to Sharon!!
