Pretty Poinsettias


Time for a new challenge over at Christmas Sparkles and Debs has chosen the challenge of "show us some embossing."
I haven't bought any new Christmas stamps this year so I'm digging out some old ones to re use . The poinsettia flower is one of oldest ones but I have used it loads over the years, this time I gold embossed it and water coloured it using Koh-In-Noor brights.  Used a new embossing folder for the background (free with a magazine last week)The die cut squares are fancy nesting squares from Craft Making Magic.  In hindsight I should maybe have used a darker green on the embossing folder but I'm still quite happy with this card. Hope to see you entering our challenge and adding to your Christmas card stack !
