Poinsettia Christmas A La Verve

VLVDec2012

Hi everyone!  It's good to be back, if only for a short while, as there is still lots going on in our neck of the woods.  All our company left yesterday and now we are off visiting friends we don't get a chance to see very often over the course of the year.  Yesterday the kids and I managed to sneak off to see Disney's Tangled and we all loved it.  A cute chameleon, a fun horse called Maximus, Rapunzel and Ryder (aka Eugene) were fabulously animated and brought us some very funny scenes.  Best part - a happy ending as only Disney can do :)

Okay, enough blabbering and on to my card.  This is the last Verve December sketch and Verve Diva Teresa Kline was the designer.  Love the simplicity of the sketch and since ornaments and holiday decorations are to be used as this month's inspiration, I decided to go with poinsettias as I had the perfect Basic Grey DP.  I tend to shy away from DPs with large images but this one stole my heart and I quite like how it worked on the card too.  Rest is pretty self explanatory.

Thanks for popping in and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Hope to be back sooner than later as I miss my stamps, posting, and all of  you :)   Thanks for popping in today!

Sure is pretty! That paper made an easy card, it's stunning! You know I joined the Christmas Card Club over at SCS to get my cards done early this year! I am looking forward to it, so I have time for tags and projects come December.

Love this card, Marisa!! I love it when you can let the DP carry so much of a design. We saw Tangled for my DD's Bday on Christmas Eve and we all loved it, too! I think my hubby laughed the hardest. Maximus really stole the scenes he was in, didn't he??
