Our Daily Bread Design challenge is to use circles or squares. I used the new circle ornament bundle and matching die for this center easel card. I embossed three of the large ones in gold and then used the different size dies to cut them out. The center sentiment is also from ODBD Christmas blessings and I used the ODBD die for it as well. The side dies are a Marianne die. The leaves and poinsettia are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I added a few pearls to finish the card.

Cheery Lynn this week is to use nontraditional colors for a holiday card. I love this Lace Peace frame. I cut it out of glittered card stock and backed it with a holographic paper. I added the holly leaves and poinsettia to finish this card. All dies can be purchased at Cheery Lynn.

Cheery Lynn this week is to make a tag. I started this tag with the Cove silver stacker rectangles. I layered that with the scalloped cove rectangles in a pretty gold paper. I added a pretty snowflake 2 up in the corner with a gem in the center. The Christmas candlelight was added next with lots of holly leaves, the leaf flourish, and the poinsettia strip. I know this looks really flat and that is because Microsoft hasn't fixed the problem with all the Sony products yet and I can't use my camera to take a picture, I had to scan it instead.

grab a cup challenge at Flourishes. I used their coffee with friends stamp set but unfortunately I think it is discontinued. I emboss the cups in gold and colored two of them with copic markers. I used Spellbinders rectangles for the shapes and stamped the sentiment with walnut distressed ink. I added gold borders and ribbon and flowers to finish the card.

Flourishes. I started this 5x7 card with a green card stock, then added a square of deep red and the ribbon along the side. The pretty die cut is the Adorning squares by Spellbinders. This pretty image is from Flourishes Holiday Topiaries collection. I colored it with copics and added stickles to the dove for some sparkle. I used the Season's greetings from this set also and added a pretty poinsettia from Cheery Lynn dies.
