Some simple Christmas

 I had spent some time messing around coloring these Mondo Poinsettias from Ellen hutson not to long ago so, these were colored with markers. and were cut with scissors and are up on pop dots over the base. Its 6" square in real life.

 These the silver is a shimmer paper from DCWV and the fiber is very thick so, the stamped panels had to go up on thicker ( 1/8" ) foam dots for balance. the one on the left is A-2 and the one on the right is 5 1/2" square and used up one more of those premade bases. The reindeer are from a clearly besotted set called lets prance.

 These red green combo ones are flat cards there are no pop dots of foam between the diecuts and the base.

 This one ends up being #4 of 4 for November for me for the annual Christmas card challenge at SCS. That lace is vintage.
It's 6" square in real life.

 The inspiration challenge a week ago went to a board of 3" cards. and I seen some that used these colors as a combo so, since I loved the colors that was all I kept of the design. the snow angel is a retired one from Paper and Such and I have always thought it looked like vintage carved wood so, its barely colored that way. the sentiment is from Unity Stamps on a scrap of previously colored watercolor paper.
This is 3X3 in real life.
These were also inspired by something I had seen on the last weekends IC thread ( the little 3" cards had off set circles on the bases) these elves are from Hero Arts and were colored with markers.
