Poinsettia

Hello Peeps...Friday again!!  I have another Christmas card to share today and I have to say I am really rather pleased with it.


I made the frame by using strips of scrap paper...check out the mitres in the corner (except the top right one!!). I don't know where the stamp came from but I found it in a box under the bed in the guest bedroom with tons of others that will be making an appearance some time in the future!! I used versamark ink and heat embossed with gold powder, first the leaves on green and then the petals in red, twice so that I could decoupage them. The sentiment came from the same set too.
This picture shows the dimension.

I was inspired by these challenges and am playing along

Crimbo Crackers #56 - Poisettias
ABC Christmas - A for Anything Christmas

It's Martin's weekend off so we are out and about today as the weather looks horrendous for tomorrow.
See you soon xx
