Holly Jolly - Use Kraft

The last two weeks have flown by again. My favourite month of May is almost gone, and we are getting into serious summer now. But don't let the warm sun and beautiful flowers completely distract you from the fact that Christmas is coming although it's still a while away. So why not get inspired by our "Use kraft" challenge over at Holly Jolly and link up your fabulous Christmas creations for us to enjoy.

This time our generous sponsors are Eureka, The Stamping Boutique, Di's Digis and Melonheadz. The have given images for the DT to play with and will also be giving prizes to our winners. 
For my card, I got to play with the Poinsettia border digi from Eureka stamps. I printed the digi onto vellum and coloured using Copics. I coloured the borders using a gold Sharpie, and adhered the poinsettias onto kraft card. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Endless Wishes using Versamark and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I added a few pearls for a finishing touch and coloured them using the gold Sharpie.
