Peaceful Poinsettias

Wow, second last Sunday before Christmas already!! And I was stupid enough to finish up my shopping yesterday!!! Today, it’s time for some inspiration for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. Our theme this month is Happy Christmas/Happy Birthday with a CCK image. I used one of Ching-Chou’s newer images…Poinsettia in December, for my card. I colored her with my Copics, then fussy cut her out.

I placed her on some die cuts that I layered up, then onto the background paper. It isn’t Christmas paper, but the print reminded me of snow! I made the poinsettia embellishments by layering die cuts and adding silver micro beads for the centers. These were arranged with foliage, cut from white and silver shimmer papers. The sentiment was stamped and embossed on a fishtail banner. Since I mail quite a few cards, I like to keep them as flat as possible, and this one fits the bill!!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
