Merry & Bright

Well, here I am - Last Minute Louie.  The Paper Players Challenge #221 is due in a couple of hours but I didn't start working on my card until late yesterday afternoon.  So to work with those great colors, I chose the Tis' the Season Challenge #29 for my sketch.

Card Base:  Cherry Cobbler Textured card stock (retired).  Add a layer of Whisper White card stock that I embossed using the retired Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  Mossy Meadow ribbon was attached.  I tied a bow around the ribbon using the Gold Metallic Baker's Twine.
Poinsettia:  I cut out four flowers from Cherry Cobbler card stock using three dies from my 
poinsettia die set.  Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details was added around the tips of the petals.  A gold glimmer brad was added to the center.  After adding a couple of Mossy Meadow leaves cut from the same dies.  I popped it up on the card with Dimensionals.
Sentiment:  The sentiment from the Good Greetings stamp set was stamped on the bottom using Black Memento Ink.
I'm just going to make it.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.

Love your dry embossed background and the way you've edged your poinsetta with red glitter - adds a great touch of festive sparkle. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

Very pretty Christmas card, Patti! I love the poinsettia in place of the circle on your card. Thanks for playing with us at 'Tis the Season.

Great card! I love the colors and what you did with the sketch! Great idea of replacing the circle with the poinsettia, and the embossed poinsettia background ties in perfectly!
