Christmas Poinsettia

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend is going well, this is my second post for today!   The previous was to participate in the Art Journal Journey challenge.

I have a design today that is a little different for me.   I love flower dies, I own lots of them, but I don't use them enough.    On the design below I used the Spellbinder Poinsettia with the JustRite matching stamp but you can see I didn't do the best job lining them up.

One of my kind & talented blog friends kindly advised me about the JustRite Christmas Linky Party  so I'm joining in, thanks Shona !

  11. How fabulous Shirley, love the background and what you did with those dies looks great!

  12. A lovely poinsettia and the embossing folder in the background works well with it. I love the colours of card you have used Shirley and the embossing on the petals and the background flourish make this a really pretty Christmas card. x

  13. Lovely poinsettia!! And loved your embossing on it.

  16. I always have trouble to line these up and thats way I also don't use them enough (just as my other dies) I still think the flower is beautiful! Hugs, Gerrina

  17. YAY! Time to play with the dies! I love flower dies and the poinsettia stamps and dies are a big favourite of mine. I also have trouble lining them up accurately, but I saw a Heartfelt Creations video that shows a method where you make a template with the dies.
    I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a great idea.
    You should link up your pretty card to the JustRite Linky party before it ends.
    Can you believe we haven't had frost yet? I picked Swiss Chard for my dinner today, and my flowers are still gorgeous!

  18. I love this, Shirley! A fantastic design in amazing nontraditional and gorgeous colors!! Hugs, Darnell

  19. Fantastic Shirley. Just love the unusual colours.

  22. A very beautiful card...
    I love the colors and the poinsettias...

  23. Awesome. I must be missing something not aligning properly, as it looks terrific to me. Love the colors you selected and the flourishes & florals look super with the spattered background. TFS

  24. Stunning card, Shirley--one of my favorites! I've admired that die for a couple years, but finally got a different poinsettia & need to get it out of the package! You've inspired me!

  25. Absolutely gorgeous card! I do love it!
