Bold bright poinsettia

I used a stamp from a recent magazine freebie set for this bright, cheerful card. First I stamped a sentiment onto the banner and stuck it on the card. Then I stamped the image right across the banner, making sure the part overlapping it was mostly the poinsettia flower. Finally I stamped the image again onto spare card. Then I coloured everything, using Promarkers for the poinsettia and pencils and liquid pearls for the berries and foliage. I fussy cut the poinsettia and stuck it down over  the one stamped on the card, then finished it all off with a scattering of tiny gems.

I am sharing this with
