For Dina's Living Coral MIXed media challenge. Colour challenges are usually hard for me, but I did my best to incorporate a couple of the other colours from the photo too.
I started out by swiping some white card with Abandoned Coral DOX and using that to cut my poinsettia when it had dried. After embossing, I rubbed them with some Craft-T luster rub-ons.
The leaf layer was already on my desk, because actually I've had a traditional red poinsettia waiting there to make up into something. It was cut from a gel print, today I edged it with a gold pen. I also added some die-cut pine boughs, and used Prills for the poinsettia centre.
For the base layer, I used a stencil and scraped a couple of blue chalk pastels over it, brushed them in and then sprayed with fixative. Then I embossed it with the knit ef, trimmed it, and edged it with gold ink. I still had fantasy film and fibre handy from last week, so I stuck a bit of fibre and a twist of cheesecloth down before adding the floral arrangement. Added some gold Stickles and to finish off, a couple of little tags and a gold cord bow.

Oh how nice to have an extra minute before work, open the gallery, and be lucky enough to see one of your bright, happy cards. The coral instead of the usual Christmas red for the pointsetta is a terrific choice. The pine leaves, gold edging, and all the textural elements add up to one fabulous card.
