Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge

This challenge at SSD was particularly fun for me!
I love the "split" background.
And, additionally, since I have no holiday specific SSD stamps,
I had to use my imagination.
 I think this floral medallion from the
works perfectly.
I colored the image with my Copics and then clear heat embossed the entire thing to make the colors really pop!
(It is actually colored and cut out twice and layered, but you can't tell in the photo.)
The gold button and the bling on the sentiment added the elegant, holiday feel and serve as my three little embellies under the main focal point.
The pretty Christmas papers are from the new DCWV stacks.
The sentiment was embossed with Stampendous, Aged Green powder.
Thanks for looking!

I've been asked for it over and over again.
