Christmas with ODBD Stamps & The Deconstructed Sketch

Hi Everyone! I'm here today with a card that was inspired by the Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs to create a Christmas card using their stamps.

I also was inspired by The Deconstructed Sketch No. 179. This was my first time playing along with The Deconstructed Sketch but, I don't think it will be my last. Here is the sketch...

Now for my card...
For my card I chose to work with the Poinsettia Wreath stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. My patterned paper is from Graphic 45: The Twelve Days of Christmas. I used some pre-made borders from K&Co. that I had in my stash from a couple of years ago for the paper strips. I cut out my square using Lacy Squares from Spellbinders and added some Liquid Pearls as well as Cherry Cobbler ink around the border. I colored the image with Copics, which I am still desperately trying to get the hang of for several years now. LOL The truth is I just don't use line art images that often so, I don't get enough practice. To be honest, line art images intimidate me.

Well, I hope you like my card and if you haven't tried either one of these challenges you should!

Be Blessed,
