Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. A quick post from me with another traditional type Christmas card.

This is a lovely stamp from Stampendous called Curio Poinsettia.  I can't remember where I first saw it, but when I found it on Ebay I "had to have it".  I didn't realise at the time though that it was a wooden stamp, which I'm not really keen on as you have to get the first stamping just right, no help from Misti.

I've coloured with copics and added gold pearlescent card for the mats and a sparkly red and gold ribbon to finish.  

I would like to enter these challenges:

Penny Black & More - Christmas
Stamping Sensations - Traditional Christmas Colours
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Fall/Holiday
CCC Digi Creations - Christmas

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a good week.
