Bringing You Lasting Joy

IC204 blockToday's Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast was a no-brainer for me! As soon as I saw the Poinsettia Porcelain Plate I knew what I was going to do!

IC204 Christmas JoyThis is a 4.25x4.25 card. I stamped the poinsettias from Blessed Christmas first and colored with a mix of Prismacolor pencils and Copics and colored all around them with an olive Copic. Then I stamped the poinsettias from Luke 2:11 on another piece of cardstock, colored with Copics and cut them out.

Next I gave it all a spritz of Pearl Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels, popped up the cut out flowers, punched leaves from Prism Spring Willow med and glued them in place. For the flower centers, I put a dab of Liquid Pearls by Ranger and added some gold seed beads.

The verse is from Christmas Verses. All these images are being released tomorrow at Our Daily Bread designs. The Design Team has a huge blog hop with fabulous prizes tomorrow!! So be sure to stop by!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Thanks for stopping!
