Also picked up a BEAUTIFUL Poinsettia plant last weekend that fit right in with this weeks colors, so I used it as inspiration for my card too!
I just loved the spotted red leaves on the Poinsettia and also the bright and dark greens...soooo pretty!!
I started with a kraft card base and then added PTI's Bold Borders: Yuletide die cut in white over the top of the card base. Next I stamped my sentiment from one of my favorite PB sets...Yuletide Wishes. Next came the fun of adding on the Poinsettia's that I had stamped and fussy cut from PTI's Pleasing Envelopes set. I used a splattered stamp from SU!'s Gorgeous Grunge in Granny Apple Green ink and then quickly before it dried I added some clear embossing powder. I did this so that when I stamped the flower image, the green spots would still show through. Here's a closer up:
I love the way the flowers look with the green speckles and then the extra added greenery from the leaves and pine sprigs. I did add a few Pale Gold Nuvo Drops to the centers of my flowers to finish off my card.
LOTS of beautiful inspiration from the DT, so check it out and play along...you can find all the info right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
