Heartfelt Creations Card with Coordinating Tin

Good morning and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, hope everyone is having a great week so far.  Today I'm sharing a card and coordinating tin I made with some of the new images from the beautiful "Classic Christmas" collection released last week.  I started by adding a couple of different alcohol inks and alcohol blending solution to the tin, after a while of playing around with the ink I ended up with this very cool effect.  The sentiment is from the "Book Frame 2" set.
I made the poinsettias with the stamps from the "Petite Poinsettia" set and cut with the coordinating dies.  I also used the holly leaves from the "Holly-Ornament" die set, they go beautifully well with the poinsettias.  One of the other dies I love using and I had to add to this project is the small flower from the "Posy Patch " die set, I used that die to cut the small blue flowers.
Here is another view of the tin, love the effect of the alcohol ink.
The main shape of the card I cut with the Cricut.  The dark blue die showing underneath the stamped image is the die "Decorative Oval Window".  The image I stamped on 150lb. white Canson paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.
Here you can see all the sparkle from the Stickles on the star and the petals of the poinsettias and the flowers.
Here is another closeup of the poinsettias, lots of cutting and shaping.
Please make sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog for tons of beautiful inspiration.  Thank you so much for stopping by and until next time.
