Teapot Tuesday 68

MariLynn found a beautiful cardinal teapot for this week's challenge.




This is really very pretty and inspired me to create my first Christmas card of the season.

 

I used lot's of new stuff here - two new punches, the ornament punch and the large snowflake (for the greens), new ribbon, a new stamp set - Holiday Best - a new texture background - Eyelet.  Yep, lot's going on here. 

The edges of the ornament are sponged in Champagne Mist shimmer paint and then Chocolate Chip.  I don't know if you can see the little bit of shimmer that's there.

This card also goes with today's color challenge - Always Artichoke, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip.   Very Vanilla is my neutral. 

Okay, one down and how many more to go?  Christmas cards that is!
