Another Christmas Card. This one is done using a SU stamp from 1999 that I bought at a sale and do not know the name of the set...but I love it anyway. I stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx and colored it with Twinkling H2Os. Its a great image for painting. Just use a fine brush and have fun.

I stamped the bow twice so I could place it outside of the die cut circles. I used the two largest sizes of the scalloped circles to make the green and red mats. The image was cut out using scissors and then attached to the green circle. I matted the image on green and red and ticket punched each corner. Love that punch from SU. I also used the 3 flower punch to create the pinked circles on each corner. I simply twisted them until both the red and green points showed. Then I added the letters using a white gel pen.

I am entering this card in Sue Daley`s Christmas Card contest. Go check it out and have oodles of fun entering as many cards as you want. Here are the rules:

This card is just so rich and lovely! It covers Thanksgiving and Christmas for me! I think your painting is just wonderful and your letters are done so creatively.
