Poinsettia

Hello Peeps...Friday again!!  I have another Christmas card to share today and I have to say I am really rather pleased with it.


I made the frame by using strips of scrap paper...check out the mitres in the corner (except the top right one!!). I don't know where the stamp came from but I found it in a box under the bed in the guest bedroom with tons of others that will be making an appearance some time in the future!! I used versamark ink and heat embossed with gold powder, first the leaves on green and then the petals in red, twice so that I could decoupage them. The sentiment came from the same set too.
This picture shows the dimension.

I was inspired by these challenges and am playing along

It's Martin's weekend off so we are out and about today as the weather looks horrendous for tomorrow.
See you soon xx
