On a scrap sheet of paper, I traced the outline of the branch (from the poinsettia) over and over again until I got the hang of it. Then I drew a short little extra branch for real on the left of the poinsettia.
I used a fine-tipped calligraphy nib to color in the letters of "Merry Christmas".
I don't have a stamp positioner :( so the "joyeux" is crooked.

With the spacing between joyeux aand noel it looks as if it was supposed to be that way. (We are our own worst critics, aren't we?) Such a fine and steady creative hand you have! I like this style! have a Happy...Cotton

Very nice work extending the branch on the poinsettia. I love this set but I struggle with making it look nice. It ends up on one of the extremes - - too sparce or too much. Thanks for some great ideas.
