Merry Monday #109 - Use flowers



Good morning everyone.  I finally had time to make a card for Merry Monday #109 Bonnie's challenge - to use flower(s) on your Christmas project.  I love using flowers on my projects so this was perfect for me.  I knew I wanted to use the Spellbinder's Poinsettia die, it makes such a pretty flower. 

 I used SU Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke CS and added some gold pearls to the center.  The base and sentiment panel are SU Naturals White and the DSP is from Christmas Cocoa (retired), and matted it with Choc. Chip CS. The sentiment is from SU More Merry Messages stamped in Choc. Chip ink.  I added paper-piercing to the edges.  The poinsettia is mounted with foam dimensionals.
The layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #137

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
