Christmas using a non-Christmas Stamp

This stamp set is actually not a Christmas stamp set, except of course the little Poinsettia which I just added from the Patterned Pines stamp set. But I actually thought it turned out really well. I did spritz it with the Champagne Mist Shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol. The only problem was I dropped the stamp on it when I was stamping the Poinsettia. But, I thought I have put too much into it to start over, so I decided to use my daughter saying again, "It adds character and it is suppose to be hand stamped." I just love that analogy and use it every time I mess up a little. lol This sketch is from Stampin 411 Saturday Sketch. They actually will give you the dimensions of the paper. It helps a lot.
