Back to Christmas Cards: peaceful poinsettia

This is a much more traditional card than I usually make. I've had poinsettias on the brain. (Next it'll be non-stop Christmas carols!) I built this around the the designer paper, 'cause I love love love it! You gotta see it in person--It's by Basic Grey, their Dasher collection (Tree Skirt DSH-630).

This poinsettia is a (retired) set "Paint Prints" stamped on "Ruby Red" cardstock in "Real Red" craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The center is beaded with crystal effects. The leaves are clear embossed too (with Versamark.) The circles (so addicted to those little suckers right now) are done with the Creative Memories cutting kit (again.) The other papers are S.U. cardstock (as usual) in "Ruby Red," "Always Artichoke," and "Mellow Moss." The phrase is Versamark & clear e.p. and is from the "Peaceful Wishes" set (go figure, huh?)

Have a snookum kinda day,
