As soon as I saw the MFT Color Challenge I knew I wanted to use my MFT Poinsettia die. How to work in the blue color sort of threw me until I saw Erin & Veronica's DT cards using it as the background.
I die cut a Lawn Fawn white stitched circle & dry embossed it with a Tim Holtz woodgrain folder. I die cut the circle from the blue textured panel & inlaid the white circle. The poinsettia is covered with Wink of Stella for lots of shimmer. I layered several Penny Black "Joy" die cuts & clear embossed the top one a couple times to give a shiny finish. The leaves & top petals were lightly bent up for some dimension & I added a tiny white sequin. Have to say, I love the classic look of this Christmas card. I'm also entering at City Crafter Challenge Blog, Addicted to Stamps (used the red, white & Christmas theme) & Virginia's View.
