Josie says Merrry Christmas.....

Hi Susan here.....

Over at Cute Card Thursday it is the start of another exciting challenge, this time we are asking you to use a fabulous sketch designed by our very own Lynn.
This is such an inspiring sketch I loved using it......Our sponsor for this challenge is Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.....
The prize up for grabs this week is...TWO rubber stamps of your choice from the Kraftin' Kimmie range. For full details and inspiration from the design team, please call across to Cute Card Thursday and then join in the fun with us.

My backing paper is from an Artylicious CD called Seasons Greetings... love this CD the papers are amazing. The edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. For texture the boxes behind the image are pieces of corrugated card, the edges have been glittered. The beautiful ribbon and pearls are all from our local market....wish he had a web site I would give you all his address, its like an Alladin's Cave going into his stall.
The beautiful image was designed by Marina Neira and is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store she is called Jolly Josie. I coloured her in using Pro-Markers and the edges of the topper have been distressed and glittered.

My poinsettia I made myself, by drawing the flower onto some scraps of red and green card and cutting out the shapes, glittering the edges and layering them up, the stamens are made using flock.

My sentiment was made on the computer and again the edges have been distressed and glittered.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
