Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge

Yes, another card. This one is for Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #79, and for Tuesday Throwdown #22 - Anything Goes, as well as Delightful Challenges - "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"

I had inked up the St Nicholas stamp from WMS set Nutcracker, and stamped some images onto the X-press card, after I had cut out the shapes from Nestablilites Labels 4, ready to be coloured with Copics.  However, I had not done any colouring-in for a while, and felt the need to feed the inner child. That's why this is a Christmas card.

 I used card from the DCWV Citrus stack to back the image and to make the oval and scallop behind it. The background is a piece of scrap red I had put through an embossing folder in the bug and had sprayed with mica spray,so it has a bit of a shimmer. The blue also has a shimmer.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set. The card is a commercial blank and I added three small poinsettia's that I picked up at a craft fair earlier this year.

I did some relief work yesterday, and will go back tomorrow and work for the rest of the week.  A bit of a shock to the system! So, I probably won't get much crafting done. But, who knows......
