Merry Monday Poinsettia

It's Merry Monday time again.  


I love Lesley's sketch this week!  It went together so easily.


I'm going to take these posies over to the gals at Rudolph Day  If you'd like to join in, just take a festive Christmas card over there before the end of the month.

And Winter Wonderland has a photo inspiration...

 
I was inspired by the poinsettias in the picture.  And the reflection of light in the pearls makes me think of the candlelight. 

All Supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Christmas Blessings, Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), SU Markers (Primrose Petals, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White, Primrose Petals
Other:  Lattice EF (Hello Friend, Sizzix), Ovals Collection, Framelits, Square Lattice EF, Basic Pearls, Blender Pen

I hope you'll check out the rest of the Design Team's cards.  I guarantee you won't be disappointed!


I hope you'll join us for Merry Monday this week and add to that Christmas stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

You are becoming my muse for using the EF folders for card bases and for layers, Bonnie. Your cards have so much depth and texture, while still being clean. Awesome job and your coloring is divine!!
