Hi all and welcome to day three of Flourishes ever-so-festive sneak peek week -- one full of Christmas themed surprises! Today offers a look at the season through the eyes of a child. We all know that Lauren Pope knows how to capture children with her delightful silhouettes and this set is no exception!

What's better than watching the joy of a child during the holiday season? This set penned by Lauren Pope, called A Season of Celebrations, captures that wonder in the form of whimsical silhouettes. Children opening packages, decking the tree, or taking time out for a sled down the hill. Add in four sentiments and you have a perfect set to share in your Christmas cards and creations!

On to my creation!
I knew when I started my creation that I wanted to use THIS fabulous paper as my inspiration - it's My Mind's Eye Breeze and has some lovely shades of blue in it! This card couldn't be more simple. I stamped on Classic White using Vivid Teal, added some glitter, cut my image out with a Spellbinders Classic Oval, added some fun teal twill ribbon and a crystal Sparklet and the rest, my friends, is simply matting it all up! The sentiment from the set was stamped and punched thanks to a Stampin' Up Oval punch. My main image was matted on a shape cut (thanks to my Grand Calibur) using a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die. After I embossed my die cut image, I did use a sanding block to reveal the paper's white core. Mat it up on a layered card front that's been accented with a little ivory stitching and... voila!

Here's a close up for you!
