Poinsettias card

It was Karen B's turn to choose the theme for the Christmas Card Club challenge and she asked us to include poinsettias on our cards. Having made five cards featuring poinsettias for CCAYR's challenge last month, I wondered what I could do that was a bit different. In the process of using other papers rom the Echo Park very merry Christmas pad I saw that there was a paper in there covered with poinsettias, so I knew that would form the background of my card. I matted that with some scrap pieces from the same paper pad (the green piece wasn't wide enough for what I wanted,, so I cut it in two to tuck under the other papers), a striped piece of washi tape, an Anna Griffin sentiment and a poinsettia that had been stamped on to red paper and covered in parts with spectrum noirs with some gold gems added.

This is also for:
