'tis my Favourite Christmas Flower

When it comes to Christmas I always look for
a Poinsettia to use on my cards.
Whether it is a stamp or die
it screams Christmas to me. 

Our latest Christmas Challenge over at
Now I don't always use traditional colours
but I went close here using Rose Red Brusho's
for my Poinsettia flower which is from STAMPlorations
  heat embossing on water colour paper in white.
Added a little brusho powder touching it up
here and there to get the effect I liked.
I then heat embossed a script stamp in white
also to add a background. 
In the centre of my flower I have added a 
sprinkling of Diamond Dust which has given it a lovely finish.
(Very hard to see)
My Merry Christmas sentiment is from Paper Smooches
I used  metallic card stock as my base.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon

Till next time Cherrio from
