Celebrate The Joys Of Christmas


My new Altenew Build A Flower: Poinsettia has been patiently awaiting my attention. Today we were blessed with our first snowfall here in New Jersey (Northeastern US). So lovely to have snow when everything is decorated for Christmas. I spent much of the day in my craft room and I finally broke out the poinsettia. I inked it twice in reds then greens. I put it together with a bit of gold glitter paper, a stencil-embossed background and a piece of patterned paper using Freshly Made Sketches #316 for my layout, and this card was born. 


I am also playing at:



Stamping + dry embossing with stencil and die cutting.
