Happy Little Stampers October Christmas Challenge


Hi there, crafty friends ~
I have another really quick post to share a card I created for the Happy Little Stampers October Christmas Challenge. The theme is 'Poinsettia'...here is my card:



I stamped and water colored the Poinsettia with my Zig Clean Color markers, and added the sentiment from another set. I also added a strip of PTI Luxe Silver cardstock under the front panel...Love the matte finish! Lastly, I added a little bit of silver thread behind the Poinsettia and some Glossy Accents to the center of the bloom...and that was it!

I hope you are all having a great week, and able to find time to create! Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Stunning, Barb...love the pretty pink poinsettia! You and your Zigs appear to be bonding wonderfully (and I still can't figure mine out! Yeesh!). My big question: how did you manage to get this new CB release so quickly! Truly amazing!

Very CAS, but yet still so dramatic with this stunningly vivid pink poinsettia. Love the sparkle of the sequins and the glimmer of the bottom border strip. Thanks for joining in the HLS October Christmas Challenge.
