Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24

My friend, Sherri, and I were making Christmas cards yesterday, and she came up with the idea of using navy and white with this set. I hadn't thought to use navy for a Christmas card, but I really like the look of it with this particular stamp.

I made this card tonight for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24 (by the way, congratulations on 800 000 hits, Beate!) Can you imagine? Eight hundred thousand visits!!! Her blog is fantastic (obviously!).

Anyway, I hope you can see this card alright - the light wasn't the best for photos. I may replace this image tomorrow!

I used Whisper White as the base and used toilet paper technique with Night of Navy ink. Then I stamped the little poinsettia from Season of Joy all over (after stamping it off so it wouldn't be so dark).

I stamped the main image on Whisper White in Night of Navy as well. Then I matted it on Night of Navy. For the bottom strip, I added some diamond brads from SU!'s old Vintage brads before I adhered it to the card. (I realize the strip is too long - it's not supposed to come out on the right from under the image, but I hope this will still count!) After I adhered the main image to the card, I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flowers, tree, snowflake and star using my two-way glue pen.
