Merry Christmas Poinsettia








Tonight my card is made using Melanie's "A Year of Flowers" stamp set.  You can purchase this set from Gina K Designs.  The poinsettia was black embossed on watercolor paper then watercolored.  Small gold beads were added to the center. 

The background is a piece of Basic Grey dp.  A  Nestie was used to cut out the olive green scalloped then it was embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss  embossing folder.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the frame and also the border along the bottom.  The poinsettia was attached with dimensionals.   Martha Stewart leaves were added under the flower.  A piece of dotted Swiss ribbon was added along the bottom then the verse attached with dimensionals.  Pearls were added to finish the card.
