Xmas Poinsettia

Last night at Jacqueline's I started my card for the Case Study challenge #63 where their muse is still Niki Estes, and her inspiration card is this lovely rose.

Today I've finished putting mine together, and I'll also be entering it into the The Kraft Journal #42 where " Anything goes".

Have a look and see what you think of my interpretation.

First I used the Jolly Jingles jumbo roller to create the festive text background on some white card that was then matted onto a cream square card. The red petals and green leaves were made with the large Blossoms punch to create a Poinsettia flower, the edges sponged, and stuck onto a white card circle layered on a red scalloped circle nestabilities cut by the BS. Some Cosmic Twinkles were dabbed on all the petal and leaf tips, and the finishing touch was the gem in the center.

Recipe : Card = Whisper White, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, cream from my stash
Stamps = Jolly Jingles roller
Inks = Adirondack Rust, Real Red, and Always Artichoke
Tools = Big Shot, Scallop Circle nestabilities, Build a Blossoms punch
Extras = Cosmic Twinkles and Gem

While the roller and Blossom punch were out I also made this quick Christmas card.

I've a busy few days ahead, so I'll wish you all a good weekend, and spooky fun filled Happy Halloween.!!
