Completely Christmas challenge 33: poinsettias

Today's Completely Christmas 33 is all about poinsettias - please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team - and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For my design card I used Sparkle n Sprinkle poinsettia kindly given by the sponsor of the challenge. I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint and then made six different sizes in Microsoft Publisher. I then scanned with my Scan n Cut and then cut them all (much, much quicker than cutting by hand!). I used a couple of spectrum noir pens to go round the edges to give a bit more definition. The washi tapes and ribbon were matted on to a piece of DCWV textured cardstock.

This is also for:
