Trimming the Tree

 Closer and closer.... Christmas is not far away and I'm still frantically making cards!  Today is Wesnesday and time for another challenge at Whimsy's Inspiration Challenge Blog with the theme of Patterns and Pearls.  Grab some of that patterned paper you are hoarding (that's where I got mine!) and add some pearls!  I used Whimsy's Trimming the Tree digi designed by Chrissy and I do love the whimsy of those little bears she designs.  The patterned paper from Bo Bunny's Father Christmas collection which I found at One Crazy Stamper - I need to get more of that because there isn't a piece of it I don't like and if I buy a couple of each, I'm not so apt to hoard it.  The ribbon is one of the pieces from the November Ribbon Club collection I received from Really Reasonable Ribbon .  You should see the packages Bonnie puts together... almost too pretty to open and use (there's that hoarding tendency of mine again!).  The sentiment is one from Whimsy's Magical Mini Letter Seals and the Poinsettia is one of the Shape EZ templates.  This was my first try at using the templates and Easy Schmeasy... I cut it out of red glitter paper and then added Stickles around the petal edges and voila... a poinsettia.
Have a great week!

How very pretty! I do not know about these templates that you used for the poinsettia, but I'll definitely be checking them out! It's so beautiful, hard to believe you when you say it was "easy schmeasy" LOL Love the card!
