Christmas Wishes for CAS Christmas Card Challenge

 Hello friends.  This is my second post today.  I finally decided what I wanted to do with the red and gray colors at  CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Red & Gray, 

ETA:  Yea, my card was one of the Top Picks at CAS Christmas.


 I used SU Poinsettia Petals stamp and dies to die cut the pretty red poinsettia.  I shaped the petals and layered them together and added the pretty pearls to the center.  I didn't want to die cut gray leaves so I placed the poinsettia where I wanted it to see where to stamp the leaves in Smokey Slate on the Smokey Slate panel, for a subtle look.   I stamped the sentiment from SU Peaceful Poinsettia (retired) in Real Red on the panel and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile EF (love the texture from this EF).  I glued the gray panel to the white card base and then added the poinsettia.  Then I decided to add the berry sprays from the same die set cut in white and I like the finished card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
