Christmas Holly and Poinsettias

Evening Everyone,
Oh dear, today has been a very long day indeed.
7pm seems to have taken forever to arrive, and where has the beautiful spring weather gone from yesterday? It has been freezing cold all day.
Of course the change in the weather is probably my fault. I spent a very enjoyable evening yesterday with some Girlfriends making Christmas cards!!!!
 Well you can never be too prepared can you lol.
I bought a very large Crafts Too Christmas embossing folder a while ago with a fabulous holly leaf design on  it. Of course having bought it because I liked it, I had absolutely no idea what to do with it.
It was far too big to use as a whole, however cut into four it makes the perfect background for a die cut poinsettia from Sue Wilson.
 And a sentiment from Hobby Art.
 I have sponged each panel on the debossed side with brown, green and red distress inks.
The poinsettias were cut from red and gold cardstock. I got a little bored with poking out all the fiddly bits, perhaps I need to get hold of one of those fancy tools for just that purpose.
I added some stardust pen to the leaf veins, and glossy accents to the berries.
I also added some die cut holly branches.
Lets hope it warms back up tomorrow, and that I don't wake up to a foot of snow. I don't think I could face that.
Better press publish, before I fall asleep again. No time for anything else today.
