PDCC 143

Just popping in with a last-minute entry into PDCC 143.  The beautiful color scheme was just the push I needed to make a Christmas card.  Last year at this time I had made lots; this year I have a grand total of three!


I used scraps from my scrap box for the three colors of cherry, mint julep, and jade.  The flower is a PTI die, the leaves are a Sizzix die, and the scalloped border is a Fiskars edge punch.  The sentiment is  Hero Arts stamped in Color Box frost white.

Thanks for dropping by!

Beautiful Inspiration:

That's three more than I have :) lol. I'm going to have to succumb to one of these challenges soon & get started.
I love the layered flower, and the different greens. Fun & elegant at the same time!

You've made two more than me, Ann! I like the design of this one, with the sentiment stamped in white onto the dark panel.

It is fantastic that you are getting started on your holiday cards already, Ann. I love all the texture on your card - the layered flower and the beautiful leaves really compliment the dark green background. I am sure anyone would be excited to receive this in the mail.
