On The Eighth Day of Christmas.

Day 8 of the Frosted Designs 12 Days of Christmas Challenge.

On the Eighth day of Christmas my True Love said to me please use 8 brands/products.

Here is the list of brand items that I used. Easier to put together than I expected after Washi

Papermania:               Green cardstock.
XCut Die:                    Nesting die Ornate Frame.
Versamarker:              Watermark Pen. (embossing on flower swirls)
Ranger:                       Distress Markers.
Little Claire Designs:   Poinsettia Digi.
Pebbles Inc:                Pearlescent Chalks.
Holly Hobbie:              Christmas Joy paper collection Poinsettias.
Wow:                           Metalic Gold Embossing Powder.

This is the card I made from the above ingredients.
I layered the cardstock and design paper onto a white base card and then printed the digi onto 140gsm cartridge paper. I then fed this back into the printer and generated the sentiment in word so that it would super impose over the digi. (A little  fidly but  with a  bit of trial and error on printer paper first  to get the correct possitioning  not impossible to do.)
A close up showing the lovely effect you can get by layering the pearlescent  chalks over the distress markers.  You can also see a little of the gold embossed swirls.
Entering into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: On the Eighth Day of Christmas.
Tuesday Alchemy: Anything Goes.
Simon Says Stamps: Anything Goes.

Lovely poinsettias. Really like this card, and I'm impressed by all the digi & computer work here. That can be so tricky and I always mess up. You did a fab job on this one. So pretty. TFS
