Hey hottie! I am so loving this chili pepper image from the Hot & Spicy set!!!  I didn't intend for this to be Christmas-y looking card, but once I got it done I thought it would be fun!  The chili's remind me of a Christmas swag wreath 🙂  I colored my chili's with Copics, then cut the image out and used some Pop Dots to pop it up.  The image has a bow at the top of the chili's which gave me the idea of adding a pretty ribbon bow for some dimension.  The bow is actually a double bow with some 1/16" ribbon hanging down in the middle, and I added a brad around the center.  I really struggle with plain backgrounds so I took this "white" panel to my Scoring board and added a double score boarder all the way around and due to my phobia of all things plain white I chose to use this awesome paper from Mark's Finest Papers, it's called Favorite  Natural, it's white with some "fiber" looking flecks in it… LOVE!  Well that's it for me, thanks so much for hopping along with us this week.  Hope you enjoy the rest of today's hop!!

  1. Wow! I never thought of a pepper card as being so gorgeous, but it really is a beaut. Beautiful ribbon, brad, and the scoring really added some punch.


  2. Fantastic card…love everything about. Great dimension, perfect ribbon and bow, scoring details, and coloring are lovely!!


  3. I love this card…the coloring is fabulous, the brad is perfect, the simplicity lets the chilis get the attention – everything works so well together. Thanks for sharing.
