CAS Christmas July 2018 - POINSETTIA (#2)

Hello friends.  Just a quick post today playing along with CAS Christmas AGAIN with their Poinsettia challenge!  I have a lot of fun and pretty Poinsettia stamps and dies, and just really wanted to make another Christmas card!



One of my favorite Christmas stamp sets is Avery Elle's Holiday Bouquet which has a beautiful Poinsettia bouquet.


I embossed the bouquet in black and then used my Zigs to water color the flowers, leaves, and berries.  I used red & orange and blended them together for the flowers and really like the peachy pink color I got...maybe not too realistic, but I remember last Christmas being blown away by all the different colored Poinsettia's out there!!  My sentiment is a favorite from Penny Black's Rejoice With Joy set.

This challenge is open till the 24th, so check out all the GORGEOUS cards from the DT (and in the gallery) and play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  2. Beautiful! That is one of my favorites too!! Poinsettias can be just about any color, my husband was even surprised at some of the colors! We hit 100 degrees today, pretty hot, but it is dry! Good day to stay indoors though and play! Have a great week coming up! Heart Hugs, col
