Artsystamper Challenge - Winter is Coming

Hello my friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Artsystamper Challenge Blog where the team is showcasing digital images designed by Beverly Cole at The Artsystamper Shop!   The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month brings another Artsystamper Challenge and today's theme is:
Just a heads up ... this will be the LAST CHALLENGE at the Artsystamper Challenge Blog.
Bev will still be designing and have her Etsy shop but the challenge will be closing for now.

Today, with the help of Microsoft Word10 and Beverly's amazing digital images, I've created this fun and beautiful slimline card for you ... hope you like it!

 I have never grown an Amaryllis plant but I used to work next to a gentlemen who every holiday season had one growing in his cubicle and I would watch it develop from a bulb to a beautiful flower such as the one Beverly has drawn for you here in this digital stamp set titled after the name of this beautiful flower . . .  Amaryllis

I've also used one of the beautiful designs from Bev's  Christmas Joy paper pack for my background.  I must admit that I modified the color just a bit so this beautiful single stem flower would really be the focus of my card.  I've also created the oval shape through Word10.
 To add a touch of dimension & sparkle, I've die cut two snow flake panels using the Sue Wilson 'Festive Collection - Frosty Snowflake Border ... centered each panel across the top & bottom of my card then cut off what hung over the sides.  A touch of Nuvo Glitter Drops 'Golden Sunset' gave me just that little touch of sparkle I was looking for.

You do NOT have to use Beverly's images (of course we would love to see them if you have them) ... but you must follow the theme to qualify for the prize.  
PRIZE you say . . .

YEP ... The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the shop!!  And there's more new images/papers coming in the weeks ahead!!
