Poinsettias

Hello everyone,

An easy challenge this week at For Fun Challenges as you can let go on creativity – the theme “anything goes”.  As Christmas is only 32 days away I decided on a Christmas card for this challenge. Last Sunday we had our regular Christmas evening of song at our church. This is always very special and the Christmas hymns just a joy to sing. Maybe that’s why I chose the music sheet paper and little ornamental bells to create my card. I love the poinsettia flowers from Prima although the large poinsettia may be a little bit too overwhelming for the card. 

After completion the card also fits the following challenges:

 

I used the following to create this card:

  • Red, brown and white cardstock
  • 7Gypsies’ designer paper “Orchestra”
  • Lili if the Valley stamp “Christmas Ted – Big Star”
  • Kaisercraft clear stamp “Tis The Season Collection”
  • Bells
  • Gold thread
  • Prima poinsettias “Holiday Celebration Snowflake”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Oak leaf”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Doily lace”
  • Gold doily
  • Twinkling H2O for colouring
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Vintage photo”
  • FlowerSoft “Polar White”
  • Ranger Stickles “Golden Rod”

The Design Team ladies at For Fun Challenges created a variety of cards for your inspiration. Hop over to see all the lovely cards and I hope to see your card at the challenge this week.

Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Greetings from a sunny and warm South Africa,

Amelia

    Oh my goodness!!! I love this card! I love Christmas music as well. I just added to my I-tunes collection last week and made some cd’s to listen to. It always inspires me to get those Christmas cards made. I love your use of the music paper and that image is ADORABLE!! In fact, so much so that I just hopped over and ordered a Christmas Ted of my own. Thanks so much for the inspiration and for stopping by my blog to comment. Have a blessed week! Melisa

    Hi Amelia, I love this card, the image, the papers & especially the flowers & I don’t think the red poinsettia is too big at all 🙂

    Hope you’re having a great week.
