Thank you again Jeni for your wonderful prize :)
Here is my creation:

My image is from DRS, "Giant Poinsettia".  This is such a lovely rubber stamp!  I colored with Copic markers and then outlined my circle with gold leaf and mounted on Spellbinder's lotus pendant.  My poinsettia flowers are from Prima.  Basic Grey's Jovial Collection adds the finishing touch.

My next card was designed by our own Priscilla of "Priscilla Styles".  This is her newest design, "Christmas Stocking".  There are just so many possibilities with this gorgeous image!

Thanks for visiting and please join us for this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, we would love to see your creation!
