In the Lane...

Hey there.....

Oh My Word.....when I saw the photo inspiration at Jingle Belles, I thought what in the world can I do with that:

Now....I am so glad I played along. This may be my favorite Christmas card yet.
Absolutely love how the colors compliment each other!!!!

Background was stamped and heat embossed, as was the cute sentiment.
Poinsettia was die cut from Audrey Blue cardstock, then I coated the top and bottom section with irRESISTible Pico Shimmer, leaving the center section plain for some contrast.
Sparkling Clear sequins and a few Aqua colored gems finished the card.

Super Easy Peasy Mr. Sneezy!!!
