More Christmas in July

I made quite a few cards for Impression Obsession to take to CHA, so I thought I would share another with you (even though it is another Christmas card).

Today's card features a brand new IO poinsettia image and saying. The paper is by Penny Black. I used some of this paper for a class a couple of years ago, and I still feel as though I am still up to my eyeballs in it. Perhaps I bought a few too many sheets. :)

I colored the poinsettia with Copic markers and chose some of the leaves to be red and some to be green. To finish the flower, I added some gold pearls from Memory Box.

Speaking of Memory Box, the new "What's in the Box" release is the 25th. Woohoo!

For those of you who shop at Angela's, don't forget to join us at our anniversary party on August 1st. You can find information about the day here. Also, please consider bringing items for our community outreach project. We are collecting items for Facets, which is a local non-profit organization which provides assistance to the homeless in Fairfax County. They are especially helpful to homeless families. A complete list of what we are collecting can be found here.
