Son of God Winter Scene from Sugar Creek Hollow

For today's post I have chosen to use the beautiful Winter Scene image from Sugar Creek Hollow .

  The pre-colored image is how I chose the rest of my card elements. I used some gorgeous background paper that I just purchased and I just love how it looks with this digi stamp!  I printed the main image three times, once as you see it as the focal image,  once a little larger to layer behind it and once to cut out the scroll so that I could pop that up to give it dimension.  I think that the Winter Scene makes such an elegant card. 

I have a question for you.  How many of you love the beautiful flowers that are on the market but find them a little pricey?  I'm not knocking the most famous maker of them.  (I think you know who I mean)  They make GORGEOUS flowers but who can afford to buy those on a regular basis??  Well,  I've done this before but not recently so when I saw these beautiful holiday flowers at Michael's I couldn't resist.  All of their holiday flowers and sprays were on sale.  I chose 4 different color poinsettia type flowers and 3 metallic sprays.  The flowers came in a bunch with 12 blooms.  They were 80 cents after the discount.  That's right.  80 cents for a dozen pretty flowers.  I just brought them home and popped the blooms off.  The sprays were just pulled apart as well and I just cut off the leaves as I need them.  It's such a cheap solution and in my opinion they are so beautiful on a card. 

Card Makings:
fabric flower
sparkle & organdy ribbon
Christmas spray (silver leaves)
