Christmas Postcard

I love this stamp.  This is the third Christmas card I have made using this stamp - all of them different.  You're probably wondering why I'm making so many Christmas cards.  The reason is a craft show coming up very rapidly - so these challenges provides me with the opportunity to get different cards made.  This card is made using the Paper Players Challenge #20.
Stamp: Christmas Post Card
Paper:  Card base is Old Olive which has been embossed with the Petals a Plenty embossing folder.  Smooch pearlized top coat was applied to the centers of each of the poinsettia flowers - just to add that extra bling.The outer edges of the card were sponged with Crumb Cake ink. The designer paper is from the Deck the Halls series and it is matted with Real Red card stock.  Both the designer paper and red cardstock were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  The image is stamped on Whisper White card stock - also sponged with Crumb Cake.
Inks: The entire image with the exception of the words was painted using the following reinker colours:  Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green, More Mustard.  I used the gold smooch pearlized accent to paint the words, and used the Smooch pearlized accent on the bells and berries. Crumb Cake ink for sponging around edges.
Accessories: Petals a Plenty embossing folder, Flower itty bitty punch (this was used to create the border around the image), Gold Smooch accent, and Smooch pearlized accent
