Poinsettia Tag

Today's card was made using the inspiration photo from Addicted to Stamps and More, the tag challenge at CAS on Sunday and the colors from Colour Me.

I took a piece of PTI's Stone cardstock and die cut it with a Blueprints pierced edge die.  I then used some embossing paste and the Falling Snow stencil after masking off a spot for the sentiment.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled on some Rock Candy Distress Glitter so the card has a subtle shimmer IRL.

Once the embossing past was dry, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The poinsettie was stamped with various SSS inks and die-cut.  I then colored it with Wink of Stella.  It looked a bit bare on the Stone panel so I tucked a tiny little tag behind it with a Baker's Twine bow.  I finished the card with some PPP sequins.

Thanks for visiting.

This is a stunner Karren - the stone coloured background is perfect for the splash of red. I'm just waiting on a snow stencil, very similar to that one...what a perfect way to use it!
