Hi everyone!!! Well, winter is really here now...we've had snow flurries all day and the snow plows are out. Today's card was originally just for this week's CASE Study challenge, but as I was looking at the other sketches I had saved to do this week, I noticed that my card could fit the Card Patterns sketch as well (if I turned the sketch 90 degrees). I don't usually like to combine challenges, but this was by coincidence, so I'll go with it :) The CASE study gals are honouring Heather Pulvirenti this month. I so adore her style of bold images and colour. This week I was inspired by this large circle and flower. I had in mind another large doily, but someone already posted a card with one, so I changed my mind. Then I thought of a LARGE poinsettia, my favourite flower of the Christmas season :) I love all the different colours it comes in now. I chose a cream with pink edges for this card. I die cut 3 different sized poinsettias, folded and bent each one until I could tear them apart into 2 pieces. Then I inked the rough sides with berry sorbet and sweet blush ink and layered them using glue dots. The glitter leaves were die cut from glitter cardstock with a PTI leaf die. I am in love with nontraditional Christmas colours...how about you? Have a lovely evening. I 'm off to make the muffins I eat at recess each day, YUM!! LOL Sweet dreams,
