Christmas cards galore!

Wow, I have been very negligent with my anyone out there.....!
I have been toiling away with my craft fair crafts and Christmas cards for classes and to sell. I have completed 2 craft fairs with my final one on Dec 17. I installed the first rack of Christmas cards today and another, at a different location, on Dec 1st.
Then I will take a little excursion to Portland, Oregon for Close To My Heart's Seasonal Expressions Launch and some Christmas shopping.

Here is a card I created for one of my first Christmas card classes, using the fabulous, Season of Magic. I would like to add that often I am inspired by other CTMH Consultants and sometimes copy their work. I do like to give credit where credit is due, so if any of my art looks like something you originally created....Thank you for the inspiration.
For something a wee bit different, the scalloped circle and base mat colour is Desert Sand. Then on Pomegranate cardstock, I random stamped with coordinating ink and White Daisy pigment ink. One the Colonial White circle, I stamped the wreath with Desert Sand ink, then stamped the second generation ink to provide a lighter wreath behind. I stamped the berries with Pomegranate ink and the sentiment with Black ink.

I cut the poinsettias from Flower Market with retired Red and Green Glitter papers. I added some retired Green Glitter gel to the centre of the flower. I also drew a line, with my Black Journaling pen, around the main circle for a bit of focus.

All supplies are Close To My Heart.
