Merry Monday #37

I have been following this blog for quite some time and have been wanting to play along.  I actually did play along once but did not finish my card in time to enter the challenge.

I really liked this week's sketch so decided to give it a go.  Here is the sketch:




And here is my card:


Card stock is from my stash.  I stamped and heat embossed the poinsettias (Verve poinsettia Christmas) with gold embossing powder.  I also heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.  I punched a star out of gold glitter paper.  The ivy border punch is from Martha Stewart.  The design paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad - Simple Stories "Handmade Holiday".  I love this paper pad and am looking forward to making more cards with the design paper. I'm very pleased with this card and will be sending it to one of my friends in December.

Thanks for stopping by!

I really love your very creative take on the "oval" part of the sketch. That was brilliant. Your gold embossed poinsettias look beautiful! Best, Curt
