Here's my card featuring Stamps from THE TON.
Creating a faux Letterpress look by using several layers of the Wreath Die Cuts inked with Couture Color . Then run it through the Bigshot with a rubber mat to make the impression.

A simple sentiment and a few Sequins completed the card.

Oh, I recognize that technique! It's always nice to see that other people can duplicate all those techniques that Jennifer McGuire shows us. It gives me hope that I too will someday achieve them! :D But what a smart choice to use that wreath; it makes for a beautiful card, and creates a huge amount of dimension with the berries and bow on the impressed wreath. And I like the pink and green that you used; it looks very sophisticated. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us and participating in Taheerah's advent calendar!

Unique, Beautiful, colorful concept using non traditional holiday colors to create their holiday cards this year. Noticed a Lot of artists are taking the non traditional route this year in creating their hokiday works of art. Last few years were burgundy, wine, maroon, royal purple, non holiday shades of green.

I love all the colors in your card. The wreath is not your typical Christmas green and neither are the other colors Christmas colors really but I really like them a lot. Who says Christmas has to be just red or green? Not you, that's for sure. Thank you for showing us your Christmas but not Christmas card. Thanks also for giving us the chance to win something. I hope I win!
