Power Poppy Rewind Challenge

I have been really getting into Power Poppy stamps! They suit me to a T - beautiful flowers, beautiful script writing for the sentiments and some gorgeous Christmas stamps. Also they come in digital, as well as clear stamps. I now have started a collection of both, I even suggested that I receive a gift certificate for Christmas! :)

So on to the latest challenge that I have joined. Power Poppy are running their Rewind challenge this month, which means that we pick one of the 10 challenges from this year. I chose Gifts from the Heart, as I had coloured this beautiful Glittering Glass Santa before Christmas and I was trying to think of a way to use him. I finally received some Power Poppy clear stamps that I ordered. I was hoping that I would see them before Christmas, but it was not to be - I'll remember to order a lot earlier in the year next year! Regardless, the customer support by Marcella was fantastic! Anyway, there is a sentiment that went well with my colouring and the little gift card that I wanted to use.

Here is my gift card:

The Glittering Glass Santa is printed on X-Press It card then coloured with the following Copics:
Red of Santa's coat and berries - R32, R35, R37
Green of tree and gloves - G02, G05, G07
Green of plant - YG63, YG67
Face of Santa - E000, E00, R20
Top of Santa (hanging part) - Y28
Background - B000
White fur of coat - clear Wink of Stella

The Merry Christmas stamp is a sentiment from the Poinsettia Stamp Set that I notice is still on sale!
I stamped the Merry Christmas in Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink.
The kraft card is from Envelope Solutions. Glittering Glass Santa is attached to the card with foam dots.

I hope to be posting a lot more in the coming year - I am going to work on my shop and I also made a commitment to myself to sit down and make more cards! Also I have a lot of new stamps and things to play with!! 

Thanks for looking!
