Hi there stampers! We have 6 (six) months until we celebrate Christmas. Are you preparing your holiday cards like I am? How about counting down the weeks until we can see the 2016 Holiday Catalog? September 1, 2016 cannot come soon enough. Ok so onto my card for today.  

I made my own background on the Crumb Cake piece using the images from Peace this Christmas stamp set. Then I splattered using the Gold Wink of Stella® glitter brush. I used the cap to assist with "flicking" the brush to get the look and not to get my fingers too messy. I also used it on the center of my poinsettia.

It's hard to tell in the above photos but the Christmas banner is stamped with Garden Green ink and then heat embossed with Clear Stampin' powder. 

I played along with the sketch from Paper Craft Crew (#PCCCS200).
