Hey there, it's a fun CAS challenge this week...we're supposed to create a project that reminds us of Grandma's house.  I was going through my stamps when I came across this Stamping Bella image.  It totally took me back to when I was little!  My Grandma (pretty sure I get my craftiness from her), used to love to make Christmas ornaments.  One year she made little soldiers!  This is the perfect stamp for the challenge!  *grin*

The soldiers were stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  The panel was die cut with a My Favorite Things edge!  The gold panel was created with Copic markers, as was the poinsettia.  Prills were used for the flower center, and instead of bringing in more colors, I opted to color the flower's leaves black instead of the typical green.  I'm not sure if I love it, but I don't hate it either.

This card fits into the following challenges:
