Christmas Poinsettia.



I wanted to enter the current Wednesday Challenge over at the Simon Says blog but as we don't send Halloween cards here in the UK I decided to use the colour option and make a Christmas card. I had this lovely patterned paper in my stash that was the perfect colours so used that for the backing.  The poinsettia is a Hero Arts stamp and die set that I have stamped and embossed in gold on Vellum and layered up, I have then added some die cut tags. Hopefully this card qualifies for the challenge.  I shall also add it to the a2zScrapbooking October challenge "Layer it".

Hope you are having a good week, the weather is still really sunny here but the temperature has turned colder and it feels like Autumn has arrived.

I LOVE those colors. Making your poinsettia in gold and white was a perfect way to set your focal point. Elegant.

So glad you joined us at A2Z Scrapbooking.
