Big Daddy

This is probably the last Christmas Card that i will be making for this year. I think that i've saved the best for last. This is for my husband, Steve, who I always call Big Daddy. He's the best! he's kind, considerate, very generous, a wonderful husband and an excellent father. He's the love of my life. I know that he will love this card. He's proud of what i do, and shows off my cards to everyone...

For the flowers, OMG, what a pain...i stamped 4 images, water colored and then used crystal effects on the main image. I then cut out the other 3 images, so that the leaves could move, and used crystal effects again on all the images. IRL the flowers have a 3 dimensional look. I'm very happy with this card and can't wait to give it to him on Christmas morning! Thanks for looking...gotta go back to the kitchen and start baking!

Cardstock: Old Olive, River Rock, Purely Pom, white, and SU Holiday Harmony
Ink: Old Olive, Purely Pom, Basic Black
Stamps: Hero Arts Poinsetter, and Michaels Sentiment
Embellies: Gold Organza ribbon, gold cording, glittered berries, and leaves
