The Less is More Challenge is to use yellow. Mandi, one of the Hostesses of this fabulous challenge site made a card that I had to CASE. I loved the way she had a pop of yellow.
I instantly thought of the chick image from Gina K Designs Vintage Chic stamp set. While I used a little more yellow, I was definitely inspired by Mandi's card. (Thanks Miss M)
Less is More. Thanks Ladies for having such fun challenges!
This card is for a Dirty Dozen current and alumni [that's me!] Christmas challenge over at SCS. This challenge started in January, and is monthly. Since it is almost 1/2 way through the year (shut the front door), I figured I had better get started making Christmas cards. What better motivator then a challenge. :)
Here is a close up of my Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettia. By using pop dots in between the layers, you get wonderful definition of the layers. I also used a stylus [with a foam pad] to add some roundness to petals and leaves. [I learned this from Kittie Caracciolo over at KittieKraft.]

Okay, my first [challenge] Christmas card is done for 2012. If you are a Fan Club member of SCS you can see the gallery here, or, if you want to become a Fan Club Member see information here.
