Smells like Christmas.....

Hello everyone: Well, even if it doesn't really smell like Christmas yet, this card might make you recall those wonderful scents of the Holidays coming from the kitchen or your Christmas decorations.
This image from Power Poppy's Spice it Up stamp set only needs the aroma of cloves and oranges but even without it, still looks awesome. Here is my card.

See what I mean? the combination of the citrus and cloves really adds the sweet feel of family and the Holidays.  I stamped this image onto Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, I sponged the panel with Hello Honey ink, I love this color, it adds such a vintage feel to your cards, I placed a few sequences and stars for some bling.
The pattern paper and ribbon are from my stash, the die cut embellishment is done with THIS corner dies.  Here is a picture of the finished inside.

The sentiment is from that same set and the little pine cones are from Merry Littles, also from Power Poppy, I use this little images all the time, they are perfect to add to the inside of your cards.
I'm linking this card to the Tuesday Morning Sketches 
I just flipped the sketch on it's side.
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
