I really mulled over what shape card to do for this, but I'd seen this template floating around the internet a lot and really liked it, so I thought I'd have a go. Thanks to Marianne at Stamp ARTic for her great instructions. My papers are Basic Grey 'Plumeria' and my image is from an art deco stamp set I bought a couple of years ago from Lilac Lemon Designs. It's ages since I've used them, but after rooting through a couple of hundred stamps for an idea (didn't want to use a digi) I thought this would be perfect.
The Promarkers (mustard, purple and shades) are a perfect match for the tones in the papers, so it all went together really well. A Martha Stewart punch did my edges, inked with distress ink and a nestie cut the internal greeting oval. As we're sponsored by Marianne Design, we used her product too. My fern at top right, the flower and the leafy swirl inside are all Marianne D's. Some mesh, lace and pearls from my stash finished it off.
So that's it. All that's left is to wish all my blogging buddies, friends and even folk I don't know in any way at all, a very Happy Christmas and New Year. I hope you all have a wonderful time.
