CAS Poinsettias for Merry Monday


Kathy's challenge at Merry Monday this week is a favorite of mine.

I used a NBUS die from Simon Says Stamp and popped it over a piece of 
Inka Gold smoosh background.

I die cut again from some green cardstock and inlaid the leaves.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

How pretty!!

SO pretty! The texture of the petals put me in mind of the delicate crewel work. You got a lot of texture on that smooshing! Love the placement you've done with the flowers too. Delicate & gorgeous. TFS & Hugs

Love how the poinsettias are cut outs and we can see one of your fabulous smooshed and/or papers underneath. Very cool!

That smooshing is really perfect for those poinsettias. What a smart way of inlaying the leaves.
Beautiful xx

Hey, I have that same die and haven't used it!! :) LOVE the colours from the inka gold smooshing. And great idea to inset some watercoloured green leaves --- very clever!! xx

This die cut border of poinsettias and leaves inlaid with that pretty smooshed card looks fabulous Bonnie and a nice big sentiment finishes it perfectly. x
