Flourishes Sneak Peeks Day 2 and Color Throwdown #163




Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks for the new Christmas stamp sets being released this week from Flourishes! Today the team is showing you the new Meet Me Under the Mistletoe stamp set. This is another beautiful stamp set with illustrations that will knock you outta' the park!
I used the colors for today's Color Throwdown challenge, being hosted by Barbara Anders for my card. The papers I used are Bo Bunny "Blitzen" and my image is colored with Copic markers on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. My image is cut out and layered with some Petite Oval Nestabilities, and the Labels 18 Nestabilities (yes, I'm addicted to it lately!) I layered some May Arts crochet lace over a green grosgrain ribbon, and added some KaiserCraft pearls in chocolate to embellish.

AND, as a bonus, if you ‘d like to win the set being sneak peaked today, all you need to do is figure out…

One of the ladies on the link list below is the Mystery Blogger and will randomly pick a name from all the comments left on today’s post. So, the more comments you leave, the better your chances of winning this darling set!



Today's card is also for the Color Throwdown challenge today! Head on over to the Color Throwdown blog for all the details!
Thanks for stopping by!
