DeNami Design Sketch Challenge #5

The current challenge at DeNami Design is to follow the sketch created by Ayana shown below.

This is the card I created using the sketch.

I used the Single Pointsettia stamp from DeNami Design on the background.  I didn't want the stem, so I inked the flower first in red and stamped the background.  I then added the leaves in green.  I used the Santa Chickie for the bottom element and the Double Circle to frame it.  I don't have many border punches, so I took a little creative liberty with the sketch and used the word Christmas as my "scallop".  The letters were die cut using the Santa's Workshop alphabet from QuicKutz.  The word "merry" was cut using my cricut.  I have baker's twine envy, so I created some of my own using some crochet cotton in red and white that I twisted together.

Thanks for looking!

Rae Ann, I simply adore this! Love the bright, happy colors. Such a great idea to pair up the poinsettias with the chickie- never would have thought of that!

Thanks for joining us in the DeNami challenge!
