Christmas Pinecone

Weekly-Favorite best-of-2016-scs-smaller
I made this for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC611), green & vanilla. Perfect color combo for a Christmas card.
Truth be told, this is the first thing I’ve made in over a week. I’ve been seriously under the weather. Fever is gone, but so is my voice! And my throat & chest feel like they’re on fire w/ the cough that’s still hanging in there. I’m pretty sure this was helped along by all the smoke we’ve had from the fires north of us. 

The pinecone was colored & fussy cut. I found a scrap of ivory linen so I stamped the pine branches & greeting on it then added the pinecone. The kraft bg was die cut then embossed w/ a corner flourish. I rubbed over the top w/ a white pencil then added sequins & some stickles for the sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used on the pine cone.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
