I'm still waiting to hear from the winner of Wednesday's card, Cheryl aka momzilajn. Cheryl, please contact me at email@example.com with your mailing address so I can send you this card.
Good morning! I hope you are all doing great this morning! I want to take this opportunity to tell Freida HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope your day is perfect in every way Freida!
If you haven't been to the squigglefly blog recently, you need to RUN there NOW and check out the absolutely AWESOME thing they have done! It's a beautiful, inspiration filled tribute to the artists and design team featuring their most popular images with cards created by their customers and design team. It is without a doubt something you will go back to again and again.
I was busy yesterday and didn't have that much time in my craft room, but I did have a chance to make a card for the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and as luck would have it, my card also works for the Saturday Spotlight Challenge!

I used the pretty little poinsettia that Jane Beljo drew for Squigglefly. I printed it out two times and then cut one apart. I used the center of one to pop up over the full image, and the rest of the petals to slide in under the full image also with pop dots. It gives it a lot of dimension. I used some dots of glue in the center and then sprinkled some yellow glitter on.
I used two different leaf punches; one from Martha Stewart and one from EK Success. The JOY sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called The Snowflake Spot. The papers are from Brenda Walton Christmas pack and a Debbie Mumm holiday pack. I embossed the gold layer with the textile embossing folder from Provo Craft and was really impressed (like that pun?) with how much shinier it made the gold appear after it was embossed!
It was a pretty easy card to make and would be fast if you didn't do the cutting on the poinsettia I did. The three pearls are from Prima.
Well, I hope you have a fantastic day and you know I thank you for stopping by!
