Came up with this Christmas card while trying to use up some card bases that I had left over from another project. I had this gorgeous Petaloo poinsettia in my stash, and had the flourish on my desk from when I was playing with the new die last week. One thing led to another, and this is what I came up with it.
I was a little concerned with the flourish having decidedly un-poinsettia like leaves, but in the end, I decided it was still quite lovely, so I'm letting it be.
(The center of the flower was from another embellishment I had laying around. I thought it looked nice as part of the flower)
Hope you like it as much as I do!

Wow, Debbie - this is GORGEOUS!! Fabulous Christmas card. I love everything ... the word background really sets of the flourish and beautiful poinsettia. I knew you'd love that flourish ... I just can't get enough of it! Love your layout (I see that it's one of you "go to" layouts ... I have a few of those too). The pearls make a perfect center for the poinsettia!

Debbie....gorgeous 3-D poinsettia and flourish. I really like your background layout and colors too. I found your card on the CAS Favorites Thread for this week. Congratulations, I would have hated to miss this beauty. TFS
