Bells & Boughs Merry Christmas - Technostamper #232

Market day is today and of course the weather calls for rain.  Thank goodness I'm indoors, but there are outdoor vendors.  Hope it's busier than it was last week.  The hot weather is keeping people at their cottages.  Can't say that I blame them!  I'd be at the beach too if I could swing it.
This is my card for the Monday sketch challenge with Technostamper #232 here


The image was colored with markers and a blender pen, and the poinsettias were then covered with Crystal Effects.
Because the poinsettias were a bit too big for the strip of Very Vanilla card stock, the card stock was trimmed with the flower edges allowed to hang over the edge of the paper.
Two rows of paper piercings were done on each of the short ends.

Stamps: Bells & Boughs, Petite Pairs
Inks: Early Espresso, Black Stazon, SU markers
Papers: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Candlelight designer paper
Accessories: Blender pen, Crystal Effect, Mat pack & paper piercer, 1 1/4" circle punch
