Masked Poinsettias

The May Christmas Challenge is up at Happy Little Stampers, and this time the "twist" is masking. I did the twist, and here is what I came up with. I masked the panel on the left on Bristol Paper, embossed the (Happy Little Stampers) poinsettia  images with white EP and colored them with Zigs. "Merry" is die cut, stacked and inlaid. I really love the way this one turned out.

Do go over to the Happy Little Stampers May Christmas Challenge, check out the wonderful DT creations for some inspiration. Stay on top of your Christmas card-making by entering your Christmas creation, with or without the twist, in the HLS May Christmas gallery. 

Challenge winner will receive a $15.00 credit for the Happy Little Stampers Store.
