Digi Doodle Shop Best Challenge DDSB#35

First off, if you are in the States then Happy Thanksgiving!! This is a pre-scheduled post so while you read this I am probably elbow deep in flour or a turkey. And if you are swinging by later in the week I am probably trying to be really creative with all those leftovers!!
I hope some time in the next week you'll be able to come join our challenge!
The challenge this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best is "Red and Green". I am especially thrilled to share this weeks card with you because Judy had asked to let her know if any of us on the Design Team had requests. I piped right up!! I had been looking for a good Poinsettia stamp and wow!! Am I glad I waited for this fantastic image!!
Isn't that image just grand?? It's so easy to make a great card when you start with this calibur of artwork!  Here's a close up shot of the different elevations:

Here's a close up of that frame:
I had a rant a couple of weeks ago about how the nesties on this set (Label 17) do not cut out great borders in a nestie fashion. But WOW!! Do they cut out great frames or what?!!
I totally cased my card from this wonderful artist, Judy Hayes.  I saw her card on Splitcoaststampers and it literally took my breath away. I just adored it.  

Here's the Copics I used:
Poinsettia: R89, R39 and R29
Center: Y21 and Y28
Leaves: YG63 and YG03


As always, thanks for coming by! I sure hope you'll come join in the challenge this week. I can't wait to see what you've made!
