Poinsettia Magic

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have been having a fabulous weekend.
Mine started with a wonderful surprise when I found out that I had won the challenge over at Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenges
It just goes to show that it is never too late to enter a challenge since I got my entry in 30mins before the deadline.
I have had a very productive day on the Christmas card front, I think I have managed to finish seven cards, not bad hey!!
I have been playing with this lovely Woodware Christmas stamp set FRCL217 Poinsettia Magic, and this is just one of the cards that I have made using it.
I used a a Colourbox Q pigment ink stack, also available from Woodware, to ink the flower and leaf stamps to create the panel on white card.
The greeting has been stamped using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I took my inspiration for this card from the sketch that I found over at Freshly Made Sketches.
I cut out the panel using Nestie Labels One and added Vintage Gold Pearlex powder to the Versamark stamped flowers on the Kraft coloured card.
I would also like to enter this in to the Anything Goes Christmas challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenges and also Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra.
Better stop for tonight. I might just cut out a few more flowers though while I'm watching TV, I'm on a bit of a roll at the moment.
Back tomorrow.
Hugs Kimx
