Kraft Poinsettia

Hi and welcome to the reminder post for the current Flower Challenge, where we have our first sketch.  I took the elements of the sketch and used them with a die-cut to make a very quick and CAS card:




I die-cut the Poinsettia Ribbon die with Cherry Cobbler and kraft card then pieced it together on a white top-folding card base.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.  The final touch was to paint the "ribbon" with clear sparkle pen.  And that's my very simple Christmas card.



Here's the sketch if you want to play along.



Thanks for visiting.  Head on over the the challenge blog to check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the DT.

Products used:

Stamps:  Holly Berries (SSS)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Cherry Cobbler (SU), Desert Storm (Neenah)
Dies:  Poinsettia Ribbon (Memory Box)
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

I would have never thought to do the poinsettia in kraft...it is gorgeous, especially teamed up with the cherry cobbler.
