Christmas Card

 
Welcome! Another Christmas card using stamps from GKD by Melanie.  I used the Poinsettia stamp from A Year of Flowers to create a masked border of flowers embossed with Silver EP and inked with Distress Ink Barn Door.  I then stamped a single flower in the same way and water colored with the same ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Melanie's Festive Frame set with the Barn Door ink  and heat embossed with Clear EP.   I added a strip of Silver Metallic CS on the lower edge of the card (Looks BIRL) and added pearls to finish.
