What's the Word.....

Hello everyone: Well, this week there is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH that I'm sure you'll enjoy. I'm pretty sure everyone has word dies in your stash so, for the next week we would love to see you create a card using word dies, whether is for a Birthday or Christmas, just a Hello or Congratulations, look in your dies stash and play along, we can't wait to see what you create.
Here is my card, hope you like it.

This image is from an old Elizabeth Craft stamp I've had for a long while but never used, sometimes there are stamps we buy and just plain forgot about them which is a shame because, like in this case, they are really beautiful.
The image is stamped onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers, the glow of the candles is sponged with Hello Honey. I added a bit of sparkle to the Poinsettias and the berries with the same gold glitter paper I used to die cut the word "Peace".
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and the candles are from a retired Flourishes set called Christmas Candles, I love this images. 
So, come and join us in this week challenge, get ready, get set.....GO!!! We can't wait to see what you create. For more inspiration, please go check out my teammates' blogs and leave them some crafty love.  One more thing.....Starting in September, we are going to have a Guest Designer spot on the challenge so, if you want to be considered for this, please add "DT" after your name when you link up your creation to the challenge.
Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you in our gallery.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Thank you Patti, I haven't made a Christmas card in a while so our challenge at SOS was just what I needed.
Love this image, really fun to color.

Thank you Barbara, I was hoping the camera would pick up the red on the Poinsettias and it did.
