Christmas kisses

Summer has finally arrived here on Crete, Greece, but I'm still working on my Christmas cards. Even though I started pretty early this year, I have only completed 7 Christmas cards until now, so that means I still have a lot more to go, if I want to send a hand-made card to everyone who's on my Christmas card list.

I made this card for the following challenges:

I used this week's sketch from Christmas Challenges {with sketches}
ABC Christmas Challenge – L for Love & using the colours green, silver and red
Winter Wonderland – Christmas flowers
Totally Papercraft – #71 Die cuts & punches
Totally Gorjuss – #85 Pearls & swirls
CCAYR – Anything goes

Materials used:
Design paper: Papermania Deck the Halls
Image: Marianne Design clear stamp, coloured with Derwent pencils
Poinsettias: Marianne Design die cut; I used Versamark ink (silver) to colour some of the flowers
Swirl: Silhouette design, cut out with my Silhouette cutter
Pearls: Viva Perlen-Pen, silver
Sentiment: Marianne Design clear stamp, Versamark ink, green
