Final Festive Week with Linda Payne!

Ahh, it's been a festive month with Linda, hasn't it? We are one week away from our next Gina K release, and i have one more of Linda's "Festive Frame" projects to share with you! No"frame" today just this sentiment and some gorgeous poinsettias (from the matching "A Year of Flowers" set) and it's just a symphony of colors and patterns! Cranberry Tart, Good as Gold, White are all Gina K Pure Luxury and the SU! Purely Pomegranate thrown in ties in the fuchsia in this beautiful swirly Basic Grey Eva print. I am just lovin this two tone look of the poinsettia in deep these jewel tones! TIP: A printed ribbon could get too busy with another print, but these patterns and gold that ties them both together is really working here, a bold and artful choice, great job Linda! Finally the gold embossing and cut work really takes it over the top, plus details like the nail heads, cording and highlighting the words with a bit of yellow are just the cherries on top of this amazing card!

Let's have some applause please for the amazing Linda, thanks for sharing your talent with us this month! Please go see Linda's blog now for another "Festive Frame" project! :)

This is just beautiful and Linda has done just an outstanding job as Guest Designer. When I saw the set at the reveal I knew she was going to knock it out the park with her FAB designs. Obviously she has me needing this set and I am ordering in Dec. :o) However, I know I won't do it justice like she has though. Thanks for sharing with us Melanie and creating such awesome stamp sets! Have a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving!
