Christmas Postcard

I layered Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and two designs from the Deck the Halls dsp. The china roses were made with 5 punchies from the Flower Trio punch.  It's a very sad day though -- I think that I'm going to have to get some new Aquapainters -- mine all have split ends and the water doesn't come out very well.  

I gave the sentiment an ombre effect on the sentiment by washing the letters top-to-bottom with Daffodil Delight.  Then I added So Saffron, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chips in diminishing layers so that the bottom of the letter was the darkest.
