Poinsettia #1

Greetings! Did you see that the Northwest made the national news with the Blizzard that blew threw? Wowza - that was something! It made me feel like I was in Alaska again! However, nothing like a few snow days to get the creative juices flowing and get some cards made.

Poinsettia's have to be my favorite Christmas staple! I have a lot of stamps of poinsettias too! Here is my newest stamp by Memory Box. It's stamped onto the designer paper (also by Memory Box) and colored with Copic Markers. I added some yellow pearls from Kaisercraft to the center.

I sponged on some Antique linen distress ink around the designer paper. I love that its really subtle and makes the dp blend in a bit with the kraft cardstock. Ivory cardstock was used for the base of this card.

The ribbon is colored with the same shades of red that I used in the poinsettia. The bow easy was used to tie that fab bow. I prefer to color satin ribbon with Copic's, as it stiffens the ribbon up a bit and makes tying a bow a lot easier!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
