Poinsettia of Another Color

I know what you're thinking; another Christmas card.  Well, this is my weekly card for the Merry Monday Challenge #52 but I also am using the 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown Challenge #15 which is due before I usually get my weekly card done.  I really like the color combo in the Merry Monday challenge this week.

This is a square card measuring 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" (this size will still fit in a regular envelope).  The base is River Rock card stockThe Be of Good Cheer and Festival of Prints designer paper was cut into two squares and the squares cut in half diagonally.  They were attached to a piece of Always Artichoke card stock.  Two gold brads were added to each section of designer paper.  The layer was attached
to the card.  The image from the Watercolor Winter stamp set is a 2-step one.  I first stamped the solid poinsettia on Naturals Ivory card stock with River Rock ink.  Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the outline image over that with Always Artichoke ink.  I cut off two edges and attached all the pieces on Always Artichoke card stockThe image was attached to the card with DimensionalsI added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to the center of the flower and a Cherry Cobbler bow in the corner.  All finished.  At least you won't have to see another holiday card until next week.  Have a great evening.

Patti this is absolutely gorgeous! The colours are fab, but most of all I love the 2 step poinsettia. The papers make it really stand out and the bow is simply perfect. Thank you for using the sketch at 52CCT, so glad you joined us again this week
