This week I've used only dies and one stamp for my sentiment! Since I've seen so many beautiful cards using dies, I decided to play with the Peaceful Poinsettia dies. I made a matted circle with a lattice insert and surrounded it with poinsettias (adding seed beads for the centers) and foliage and added my sentiment. Then I layered it over an embossed background with a red border and added some paper piercing. Fairly simple, but it was a challenge to figure out how to place it all - but it was fun for a change. Thanks for taking a closer look, and I hope you like it!

Cheryl, this is stunning. You have such a great sense of design. Your card has everything in the perfect color, in the ideal place, and with just the right details. The lattice is gorgeous, and the red flowers are wonderfull. You hit a homerun with this beauty, my friend. Right into my favs and pinned.

Cheryl, this is gorgeous! Those poinsettias are So beautiful and I'd love to know how you pierce so evenly around everything! What a fabulous design! Your rich colors on white give this so much contrast!

Another lovely Christmas Card. As Susie said - a real classic Christmas card - with so much attention to the finest detail - from the piercing down to the little bead centres of the poinsettias. As always - Beauuuutiful.
