FTTC44, CAS43 Merry Christmas

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC44 - wahoooo!!! Are you ready to get your stampin' stuff out???

Maki is our challenge host today and she is challenging us to a Clean & Simple *CAS*- style card/project!!! Love this idea.....it's easy...and fast to make lots and lots of holiday cards!!! Hope you have time to play along???

I actually combined the FTTC44 with the CAS43 - Autumn Make Over Challenge. I took this sweet little card as my inspiration and turned it into this.......



















I started out by scoring my card base. Next I inked up the the gorgeous Winter Bouquet Set - couldn't help myself but to use it again :) !!! The sentiment is from the Christmas Wreath Set.

I colored the bouquet with these Copic Markers - Falling Leaves, Holly and Lilac Collection - available at the Flourishes Store.

Next I bedazzled the bouquet....actually I think I used a little bit too much Glitter - oooops!!! Sorry my photos came out a bit blurry...I think my camera was blinded by all the sparkle :) - he,he,he!!!

Please don't forget to stop by Betty, Cindy, Dee, Kimberly and Maki's Blog for their take on the Challenge!!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by today!!!
