Christmas Floral

Hi, Cindy Horvath hosting today and boy did I have fun with the image from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

My Card

For my card, I used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Christmas Poinsettia image (available in digital or rubber), and a sentiment from Seasons Greetings. Since I'm all about glitz and glam, and not so much red and green, I colored the veins with Copic BV34, and then laid on a healthy dose of Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkling Snow glitter.  I then fussy cut the image (No more, thanks to my new Scan N Cut 2!), and popped it up over the corner of my window.  My sentiment is stamped on an irridescent card stock, which was sponged with Memento Sky Blue ink, and then covered with a Spellbinders window die cut.  The sentiment is stamped in black Staz-On ink.
I hope you can play along with us this week.

Connie's Card

This was done using Stampin’ UP products. The poinsettia was punched out using the Mosaic Punch. Punched out 10 of them and glued them with Tombow liquid glue.

I added the flower to a Cherry Cobbler card base with some Silver Glitter paper. Added a Merry made from Old Olive Card Stock and cut using the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies. Finally I added 6 Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the poinsettia.
