A Festive Celebration

Today's Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge honors gabalot, with her lovely prolific gallery and fun, artsy style. I chose this Flowers for a Friend card for my inspiration.
I kept Gabby's three flowers and sentiment layout pretty close, but added some layers, embossing, and scoring. I changed images and colors and added a bow and pearls for embellishments.

My images are from Just Rite's Festive Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped on La Blanche Specialty Stamping Paper with Rich Razzleberry ink. I then scored three lines around the sentiment using my Scor-Pal Tool.
I matted the stamped panel with Prima Craftsman designer paper and mounted it on a white cardstock base embossed with the Regal M-Bossilbilities folder. I wanted a kind of subtle "fade in, fade out" look to the folder, so didn't have the embossing cover the entire piece of cardstock.
I finished off my card with a White Tulle bow and Snow Pearls. Everything is held together with 1/4" Scor-Tape. I like the simple elegance and CAS design. I hope you do too!  

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store to see all of the fabulous things that Sharon carries!
