Poinsettia in the Round

Hello Stampin' Friends.  Wow, has this week gone fast! 

Here's a card for the Free for All Challenge on SCS, Rectangles & Circles.  It's not like Wendy's card but it has both. And I only used one stamp set.

I used the Bells & Boughs set from the Holiday Mini for this card.  I love all the images and they aren't too hard to paint.

I stamped the main imageon Whisper White with Black StazOn.  Then I re-inked the center of the image and stamped on a piece of Whisper White scrap paper.  Using inkpads & a blender pen, I painted the evergreen & poinsettia.  On the second image I just painted the big flower.

The layout is from SC295.  I really love this sketch and didn't get to it that week.

The sponging is due to the fact that I got a smudge on the side of the design panel.  My Garden Green spot leaked and I forget to check for inky fingers after I use it!  I like the sponging though, so it was a good thing.

I still have a few of those little gold seed beads and I used them in the center of the flowers.  The beads are really the flower.  The red bracts are leaves.
