Merry Christmas

I picked up a poinsettia die by Sizzix, and decided to play.  I anticipate using this one quite a few times while making holiday cards this year. I did tear the larges of leaves and made a tighter base for the remaining layers to rest on. I thought this paper was a perfect foil for the large bloom.

Hubs, who is not fond of black on cards, claimed this on to be in his top ten favorites of all time.  I have to agree that it is quite eye-catching.



Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Cardstock - Neenah Aspen White 110#
Paper - American Crafts, Stampin Up
Embellishment - Stampin Up
Embossing folder - Sizzix
Die - Sizzix 

EDITED TO ADD: Thank you Greta, I believe I will enter this into the Through the Purple Haze Challenge; the topic is Here comes Christmas Day. One more entry for this one Die Cut Diva's Holidays & Celebrations. Thank you Arlene.
