Good morning everyone, today is a very exciting day!!!  Heartfelt Creations is releasing their brand new christmas collection, you are going to love it!!!!

The possibilities with the classic images in this collection are absolutely endless. You will achieve handmade projects that will "wow" your friends and family this Christmas season.  

Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by September 20th for a chance to win the entire release valued at $240.00.

For my card I used this gorgeous image from the "Holiday Poinsettia Candle" set, I love the elegance of this image.  
I stamped the image 5 times on watercolor paper and colored with distress re-inkers.
After I cut all the layers, I shaped the leaves slightly with an embossing tool and adhered everything with pop dots.  Added some Stickles to the petals for a touch of sparkle.
Here is another closeup of the poinsettia and candle's layers.
For the background, I stamped the swirls image from the "Holiday Dove" set, I stamped it with embossing ink and heat embossed it with holographic embossing powder, you can see the sparkle behind the die cut and  the ribbon.
This photo shows how I placed the cardstock with the die so I could get the shape at the top and bottom of the image.
Hope you have enjoyed my card, if you haven't visited the HFC Blog, please make sure you stop by and check out all the beautiful projects.  Thank you for stoping by and hope you have a wonderful and creative day.
