It gave me the idea to dig out the old SU jumbo Poinsettia wheel which someone gave me years ago and I have never used! The SCS Christmas Card Challenge for March is to use something from our stash which we've never used so it's perfect for that challenge too.
I kept Mary's layout and her idea of a wheel stamp across the card with something layered on it on the left and then the sentiment below on the right. But I changed the theme to Christmas, the colours to red and green. Also I cut and bordered my poinsettia wheel, rather than layering the whole panel the way Mary did. And I added the flourish under the poinsettia.

Way to go...using up what you have ..but I can't believe that you never inked this lovely wheel before!! LOL I love the fabulous poinsettia too. Of all the poinsettia dies I think Tim makes the best one! Looks fabulous.

That die cut poinsetta with the gemstones is so pretty! Love the poinsettas on your background too! I just could never use the wheel. You did a lovely job with it!
