Poinsettia

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this challenge is “Poinsettia”. The team has created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile and as always there is a lovely prize to win!

To all my followers and blog friends: Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season, have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!.

I decided to create a card in my favourite colour combo, pink, grey and green, for this challenge. I used a silver circle on a soft grey background for the focal point on my card. I die cut several layers of the poinsettia for a bit more depth to the garland and also added some gemstones for berries . The poinsettia garland was then layered on the silver circle with mirror tape for dimension. I then added a silhouette sleigh and reindeer die cut to add a more festive feel to the card. The reindeer were further embellished with pink bows and gemstones.  I finished off with a silver mirror board die cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The poinsettia garland

The silhouette sleigh and reindeer

The sentiment

A peep at the inside
