Christmas Wishes...

Hey friends!!   A post of a card that I made for the current Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge that I am going to added the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  Christmas.  Back during SSS Stamptember celebrations I was one of the lucky winners of the Altenew/Simon Says Stamp collaborative stamp set Layered Flowers.  I teamed it up with the heart image from the SSS set I See You (from the SSS September card kit) and a word from the SSS set Graphic Christmas.  I stamped the flowers using Delicata Silver Shimmer ink (sadly it looks like grey in the photo) and two shades of pink.  The leaves were stamped using Silver Shimmer, aqua and medium blue ink.  I stamped the heart using VersaMark watermark ink on Ranger watercolor paper, applied white embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I used some of the aqua ink to water color the heart.  The flowers and leaves were layered on once the panel was dry and die cut.  I die cut the word Christmas from some white glitter paper using a Simon Says Stamp die Christmas Blessings and adhered it to the card.  The word wishes was stamped using the medium blue ink.  Amounted the panel on a fog grey cardstock base, added some clear rhinestones and I was done.   This card turned out exactly as I pictured it in my head and I love it when that happens!!   I'm going to add this to the current Shabby Tea Room challenge.  I don't have any trees on it, but the colors and idea are similar to the challenge.


Thanks for stopping by today...
