Poinsettias and holly

Last year I was very good and made at least two Christmas cards a week all year - this year they are just coming along as and when I'm in the mood or spot a challenge I fancy, so my stocks are building up more slowly. However I do have one to share with you today.

I used a Clarity Stamps poinsettia stencil for the frame, stencilling with Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium,  then cut out the decoupage (a sheet I printed out 3 or 4 years ago and never got round to using, so I can't remember where it was from) and layered it onto an oval cut with one of the Gummiapan Stitched Ovals dies.

I am sharing this with
Jingle Belles - Festive Foliage
Just Us Girls - Use a Stencil
and a new challenge, The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challege where it is always anything (Christmas) goes.
