It took awhile to get the balance right on this card. Thought it was going to be a simple one, but it became a headache. Looks simple now that it's put together though.
I love the lattice shapeability and used it to layer over some beautiful poinsettia dp. I added a sentiment on a nestie which I sponged and then used a die for the multi-layer poinsettia with bells in the center.
So, a simple card, but getting my brain to think it into being is another story.
Thanks for stopping by! I really do think this is my LAST Christmas card, but I have so many other ideas this year, but not the time. Oh well, I can save them for next year.
NOTE: YES, I used a white background which almost never works for me as those that know me know I always use a black background. Maybe some more white backgrounds will be coming your way soon.

Exquisite, Pam. Yes, it looks like it was easy to put together, but sometimes the ones we think will go together perfectly never come out that way. I love your photography. R U using a box? Do you have a natural light above the box or on the top side? Your cards always look wonderful through your talented photography. Good feeling to know when you've made your last Christmas card, isn't it. Hope you're doing well.

Oh, Pam, this is gorgeous, and I really love the poinsettia and the beautiful lattice work against the DP. And what a beautiful sentiment in the Nestie with perfect sponging. Truly gorgeous!! And it sure is nice to finish the last card. I'm not there myself yet! Hugs, sweet friend!!

Pam, you've struck again and made the most beautiful card. I LOVE how you used the pretty lattice die over that yummy dp. And, those bells look so pretty in the center of your poinsettia. Love the sentiment, also.
