Noel

Hi there blog friends!
I have another Christmas card to share for the 2013 Caring Hearts Card Drive  and I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge - 'Photo Inspiration’

Clearly Besotted Challenge - ‘Christmas'
CAS-ual Friday’s Challenge  - CFC 119 ‘Embossing’
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge 
- ‘Keep it Clean and Simple’



I wanted some sparkle on the poinsettia leaves, so I used my Spica glitter pen. I think it’s still hard to see, but it looks pretty IRL.  Here is a close up:
Well, that’s it for me. The 2013 Holiday Card Workshop starts tomorrow, so I'm off to finish one more card and clean up my craft room so I'll be ready. I hope to see you all there, it's always such a fun class! Have a great day ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am so glad you posted a close up of the poinsettia, it is beautiful. Love those clear baubles in the center. It is just lovely in white, so calming. Like the stillness after a winter snow.

Beautiful embossing Barb, and such a cool layout for a card - love how the poinsettia is anchored on the bottom of that frame. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays ;-)
