Christmas slimline

Hey there - hope you're enjoying your week! 

It's time for a slimline card at Christmas Kickstart Challenge 47. I had an idea for one yesterday using Sunny Studio products I bought last August, some of which I hadn't even used yet! Typical me!! 

Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts Earth Layering Paper (retired);
Paper Studio Holiday and Brights; scraps of kraft;
Stampin' Up Poinsettia Place; Momenta Gemstones
Dies - Sunny Studio Slimline Scalloped Frame,
Window Quad Circle (larger flowers), &
free mini flower
Stamps - Sunny Studio Season's Greetings (with coordinating dies)
Other - Michael's gems; Pine Needles Distress Ink; 
white gel pen; foam tape

The "Merry Christmas" sentiment comes as one connected stamp; so does the coordinating die. Once stamped and die cut, I trimmed into two words - very easy to do! Added two shadows and some foam tape, then popped them onto a patterned panel. Layered onto scalloped frame, then to slimline card - this one's 4x9". Added the flowers (the littlest one was a free gift from Sunny - thanks Mendi). Done!!

I'm linking my card to Darnell's February NBUS Challenge too since my sentiment is getting first play today. Crazy, since I was eager to use it for last year's cards but just didn't get to it... Also adding to the February Merry Little Christmas Challenge where Anything Christmas Goes and to Watercooler Wednesday where Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist.

Thanks to all for the fun challenges and to you for stopping!! Have a crafty day!!
