Now that all the business is out of the way...........Let's get to the project I have prepared for this blog hop for Day 2!

Here is my project.

I used the digi stamp from our Sponsor, Delicious Doodles, Poinsettia Corner.   This is my first time using a digi stamp/image and I can see how digi stamps/images can become addicting!   Delicious Doodles has some pretty great images too!

I colored the poinsettia corner using my copic markers.  On this image, I used: E25, YG67, YG17, Y19, R29, R59 and C0.

I then used stickles for the center of the poinsettia and also for the berries to give it some sparkle.

I stamped this card using the sentiment from The Stamps of Life, Christmas4Him stamp set.

Here is the completed card.

Hope you liked my card!

Happy Crafting!!
