Going Dotty for Poppystamps

Hello and how are you?

With Christmas right around the corner, I'm thinking I need to
speed up on those Christmas cards.

So when I saw the Poppystamp Challenge for this month,
I thought Christmas.

I used a stencil from Memory Box with some embossing paste.

By adding some Dazzling Diamonds before removing the stencil,
the "snowflakes" sparkle.

I die cut some Poppystamps Pine Sprigs from mixed media scraps
and added some Gansai Tambi watercolor.

The "berries" add more dots.

Another Christmas card for the stash!

Speaking of Christmas cards, it's that time of the month for 
sponsored by the lovely Scrappymo.

and my snippets will let me in to

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

When I look at this card, I immediately feel very strongly the atmosphere of holidays. This card is like a time machine that takes me to childhood. I do not know what the detail of this card makes, but for me this card is unique ... Thank you, Bonnie :-)

Gorgeous! Loving the sparkle and the texture on your snowflakes!
The boughs pop off the card and look fabulous.

You have given me a great idea with your use of the trimmed down bow from Memory Box!

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.

So much gorgeous interest, texture and dimension, Bonnie ... and still so wonderfully clean and crisp ... this is fabulous! Love the shimmery snow and the shiny little bow ... brilliant with the glow of those tiny berries! Hugs, Anita :)
