Pink Christmas Poinsettia
Well its a relaxing Tuesday afternoon here - hot and windy this afternoon. Would have loved a bit of a breeze on my morning walk - it was fairly cool when I went out at 7 am, but by 745 it was blazing and no breeze, so the last half hour of my walk was quite hot - even puppy was glad to get back in the house.
I did this card for the 'Christmas in July ' challenge over at Flourishes - they are doing a whole weeks worth of challenges to celebrate their Birthday - check it out here - www.flourishes.org/blog/
I stamped this beautiful poinsettia stamp onto a smooth craft colored cardstock and colored it with prismacolor pencils. I cut it and the pink layer with Spellbinders dies and edged the image panel with metallic gold pen.
The DP is red but the images on the DP are pinkish so it matches pretty well. I used a kraft cardstock base and accented with some gold pearl drops with a viva décor pen.
