Seasons greetings

Hello everyone,
Happy December!
I created a card which can be used as a wall decor too, with lots of glimmer and shimmer to welcome this festive season in December! I went for Non -Traditional colors and blue is my fave color!
        Created a card blank by using card creator die out of blue shimmer sheets two times and mounted it on the snippet of  the white card base. And joined them for the top side as shown in the picture.
       I cut a card front out of PP for the focal point and matted it on a turquoise panel using Shapeabilities die and adhered it on a base panel using adhesive double tape. At the edges of the panel for the wintery look and create more interest and textures, I used my embossing pen and heat embossed with wow white puff twinkle powder.
      I took a chipboard flourish and glued it well and sprinkle silver glitter powder and let them dry. A little bird is another chipboard cutie which is heat embossed using wow powder.
     This is a perfect time to use my sticky adhesive sheets which I recently won from ken Oliver Products( Huge Thanks to Ken Oliver for this high-quality products and used here first time, so glad:)
I die cut the Seasons greetings sentiment using my white sheet and stick it onto the adhesive sheet, die cut it and glittered it in two shades, Ooooooh so gorgeous:) Love it!
     Stamped the Botanical roses on vellum using Versamark Ink pad, sprinkle opaque bright white powder and heat embossed it. Cut out them with coordinate dies. From the back side, shaded them using inks in white and blue. I pleated  all the petals of  the flowers using the tiniest embossing stylus. an embossing pad, shaped the flowers as I wanted the poinsettia look( I didn't have any on hand)!
    Now time to finalize all the elements. I placed my flowers using pop dots and placed a designer rhinestone in the centers with glittery winter foliage. Adhered the glittery flourishes with sentiments attached on it and popped them up using pop dots. Added my cute little birdie. For metallic element, I adhered two leaves and arranged them with my flowers and embellished it with few tiny stones.
     For finished it off, I hang a tiny star charm using  double shades silver and gold tone trimmer, So you can hang it for your Christmas Decor!
     Here is the  inside view:
     I placed a blank message tag with a flower.
Hope you enjoyed this festive creation!
