SC239 Christmas Dove

Hello! Well today is Wednesday which means sketch challenge on Splitcoast! Right when I saw this sketch I got excited because I knew that my new SU set~Gifts of Christmas would be perfect! This is one of the new sets I just had to have as soon as I saw the new cattie : ) I LOVE the poinsettia/leafy flourish! I stamped the image twice~once with the flourishes colored in using Stampin' Write markers-Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and Real Red. I then stamped the image again with Chocolate Chip so I could cut out the dove. I cut the whole thing out using my Long Rectangle Nestabilities. I stamped the smaller flourish stamp in the set with Real Red and cut out the poinsettia so I could pop it up over the dove. I added Stardust Stickles and Kaiser Chocolate Pearls to the flower. I distressed the edges using a Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink. I also added the small stitching with my sewing machine, and the red panel was embossed with the CB Snowflake Folder. The dp is from Merry Moments DSP and the sentiment is from Best Yet which is a retired hostess set. That's about it! Thank you so much for stopping by today : )
