Holiday Joy

Hi crafters and followers.  Hope you are all well tonight.  Phew almost didn't post tonight I have been so busy.  This year I have designed my mom's christmas cards and her nextdoor neighbours in Serif so I have been busy printing out tonight.
Well today's post is another DT sample I made for My Craft Creations - Sketch Challenge.
This one is an 8x8 white base card.  I have matted some green card and then embossed some centura pearl card using the new embossing folders from crafters companion - the 8x8 ones.  They are absolutely gorgeous and I am so hoping that they will bring more of these out.  Such a brilliant size.
The image is another stamp which was a freebie from one of the craft magazines which is a recent one and I have coloured this one in with copics.  The die cut poinsettias are all spellbinders and marianne dies.  The sentiment was also from the same set of freebie stamps and the swirly border is from sizzix.
Hope you like this one.  Thanks for popping by and do take care.
I have entered this into the following challenge: -
