Mustard Poinsettias??



Ok, so I can't really say that I've ever seen a yellow poinsettia, but I needed to use the colors Bermuda Bay (mine's actually Taken with Teal...), Mustard and Silver for this weekend's color challenge on Papercraft Planet. I got to play with two sets that Clear Dollar Stamps released this month - Holiday Nutcrackers and Christmas Scriptures. I colored my poinsettia with watercolor crayons and cut out my image with a oval die, then lopped off the ends, cuz it fit my card better. I like the curved tag kind of look that it gives. My image panel is edged with Encore silver ink and the dp is from Cosmo Cricket.

I hope you'll join us this weekend!

Blessings!

Oh wonderful Tricia. I love the DP you used and the sets. Lovely. That sentiment and the poinsettia flower is perfect. And the silver on the ribbon edge. Perfect touch Tricia. Lovely.
