The Paper Players #68 - Christmas Gift

Happy Weekend Everyone,
Today's post was for The Paper Players Challenge this week.  Unfortunately I have missed the Deadline due to my Modem dying and not being able to access the Internet and I have only just sorted my DH's computer too! arrrrrrrrrgh.......  I decided to still post my card and link it to The Paper Players Challenge Blog, now that I have one of the computers operating (My Computer and DH's Internet). My card was cased from my dear friend Jenny Chilton, but I have changed a lot of the supplies to make it my own.  I thought the Dashing Designer Paper I used made my card look like a wrapped present that had been decorated with a Poinsettia Flower.  The Flower was made using the leaves from Stampin' Up's French Foliage stamp set and spritzed with a Alcohol and Shimmer Mist mixture that you mix yourself.  The top layer of petals are raised on the tips by using dimensionals to make it more 3D.  I reversed the Dotted Scallop Ribbon and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to offset the greeting.  Let me know if you like it.
