Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!

Time for a new challenge at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge.  This week we have a sketch for you to follow along with.

I have decided that I am going to start making my cards 5x7 and somewhat FLAT for Christmas!  haha!  We'll see how long that lasts since my pretty WOC flowers are a not so flat! 
Anyhow, I used one of the super cute new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley called "ALL IN A ROW".    I colored them with copics this time since I wanted a very crisp white paper and my watercolor paper is a little off white.  I needed the crisp white paper to match these gorgeous Nitwits papers called "Simple Joys Too".

For this card I went outside and picked some very fine twigs that seemed relatively flat and loaded them with glue and then sprinkled on the amazing  Silver German Glass Glitter from Wild Orchid.   I really like the effect! Super sparkly!!!!!!!!!!  Other glitters just don't have the same look.

 The Merry Christmas stamp is a Hero Arts stamp (I believe).

I used a couple different sizes of the poinsettias and the cute little sweetheart blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, along with some flat backed rhinestones.

That's about it for me today! Thank you so much for checking in with me!
Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Dena
