Heartfelt Creations - Sparkling Poinsettia Candle

072715aPT (1)

Hello!   Happy Monday!   

Well - today is the end of my term at Paper Temptress!
I have totally loved my term and so grateful for everyone's support.    

And that brings me to the card I would love to share  with you today.    
I used a stamp called Sparkling Poinsettia Candle from Heartfelt Creations and some fabulous paper from Paper Temptress!


I colored the focal image on X-Press It.  This is my go to for all Copics and has been for about 6 months now.   I am totally addicted to the wonderful smooth texture and it makes blending so easy!
The image was matted on JellyBean Green 65# cardstock.   I use all my scraps to create leaves for my hand crafted flowers.  The 65# weight is perfect for molding flowers.
I used the negative space of my designer paper for a frame.  I reserved the actual mat I cut from this and will use it for matting a future card.
I used my all time favorite card base - Heavenly White 120#.
This cardstock is the perfect white for card bases and will allow a firm structure to hold multiple layers or
heavily embellished cards.
