Simple Poinsettia

Here is a simple design I made with the poinsettia from "A Year of Flowers". After coloring it with R37 and R59 I cut it out, added a pearl to the center and popped it up on a die cut sponged with Antique Linen ink. Card base is Pure Luxury Red Hot, I added a strip of Basic Grey Jovial down the center (great way to use your scraps!) and as a final touch snipped apart the little medallion from the Spellbinders renaissance pendant set into quarters and then used two of thep ieces to make these fancy little embellishments for the sides. You like?

I will be back shortly with the announcement of the blog candy, I have not yet drawn the winner but I read every comment and it brought me such joy to know how abundantly blessed you have all been this year! I'm praying about you and your family's health, it makes me all the more thankful we have not dealt with any major health issues in our family, but I know those days will come and I will remember your strength and grace through those trials and how the Lord blesses the faithful. Thank you for the encouragement too about my blog, I am so glad to know it means so much to so many!

Helping out for my sons' year end school parties this morning (making cards, what else?!) but I will return soon with the announcement!

Hugs! Thanks for visiting!
