Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential #10: Christmas Flowers

Digi stamp by Integrity 'Favorite Doll'. Sentiment by Papertrey 'Signature Christmas'. Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky, Old Olive, GP110 white. Ink: Copics, Rich Razzleberry. Punches: Martha Stewar branch and scallop border, EK Success 'Daisy', white organdy ribbon, gold Stickles.

This week's Saturday Spotlight on Hidden Potential challenge is all about the flowers, Christmas style. As Vicki describes challenge #10: With the colors/theme of Christmas in mind, use some flowers on your Christmas creation this week!

Our sponsor this week is Inktegrity:

Photobucket

The very generous creator of Inktegrity, Joni, gave us our choice of images so I chose this sweet doll. Ever since I read Melissa (Stamp It, Scrap It, Share It)'s Digi-Stamping Paper Piecing Tutorial, I've been wanting to try this paper-saving technique and thought this doll's dress would be perfect for it!

This card was also inspired by In Style's 'Punch It Out' which challenged us to use three different punches on our project. The wreath was shaped by using a circle Nestie as the base and then layering a ring of branches once, then filling in with a few more in a slightly lighter cardstock for more fullness. The poinsettias are actually a daisy punched out of holiday DP and modified with a few dots of gold Stickles. The scalloped border punch is one of my new favorites and added the final shape for the challenge.
