And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Delightful Poinsettia

Hello, Friends!  Popping in to share a quick card made for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog yesterday using the sketch from Splitcoaststampers for this week…another Christmas card to add to my stash for this year!  

Less than two weeks remains for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to celebrate their 8th birthday…hope you've been able to participate in all the fun!  For all the fun details, check out the SNSS Blog!  My card was made with yesterday's Throwback Feature…

Creative Nugget:  After white embossing the Delightfully Delicate Background, Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles, and Worn Lipstick Distress inks were sponged over the embossing.  The Poinsettia was stamped twice, sponged, and cut to be popped up and layered onto the card.  The Delightfully Delicate Background was lightly stamped on the top layer of the Poinsettia with Worn Lipstick ink. The sentiment from Christmas Innies was stamped in the bottom corner.  Prills and a silk bow were added to finish the card.  The Delightfully Delicate Background is perfect for adding just the right bit of texture to your stamping project.

Here are the stamps used to make this card 
available from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store:

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
