How is the new week shaping up for you? Yesterday day I had a very exciting day first I won a prize on Pixie's Snippets Playground and when I checked Julia Watt's blog I found that I had won a card. I have sent them both my address and now I am waiting for some happy post. That was a good start to the week.
Today is exciting for another reason, there is a new release of Christmas images on the Delightful Digi's blog. There are some beautiful images to choose from and there are coordinating backgrounds too. Click on the link and you will be taken to the blog to see what is on offer.
I started with a 7" x 7" red card blank. I cut all the layers with 1/4 inch increments. For the background I used the Poinsettia background in red. Once I had made all the layers there was a big strip of background left. It was too pretty not to use so I put it across the card layering it up to match the rest of the card,
The image is called Poinsettia. I love red Poinsettias in fact I have one in the kitchen every Christmas last year's is still there but it is all green now. I really enjoyed colouring this image and it just had to be red I used my Promarkers to do this. To the centres I added Glossy Accents to give them some dimension and shine. I did the cutting out with my ScanNcut I am getting more used to it. Before I put the image in place on foam pads I added a gold ribbon.
The greeting was cut with some Britannia word dies.
I enjoyed making this card. I do find colouring very relaxing. I do hope to make a few more samples to share with you. I have now started my Christmas cards and that can't be a bad thing.

Enjoy the rest of the week.
