Poinsetta Time

I have been DYING to try this Poinsetta Digi I got earlier this year at McMahon Five Designs.
I printed out a couple different sizes and did some watercoloring. This is the first of the two using the larger stamp. I thought the sketch at Truly Scrumptious was perfect for this image, so I went with it! It also works for the Petals part of the option....
I just LOVE the Petals A Plenty embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Doesn't it work so perfectly with the flower?
This card also fits into a couple of other Challenges out there this week:
Paper Pretties - Square Card
Stamp Something - Use PINK

I think this sketch is going into my "use it again" file. Yup, easy and I like it~

My second card was made using the same Digi Poinsetta, but sized smaller before printing. My friend, Cindy, did a poinsetta card a while back and I LOVED the layout, so I CASEd her card basically....

This one fits several challenges out there this week:
Papertake Weekly - Sparkly and Bright
ABC - Glitter
Inktegrity - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Bee Crafty - Christmas Digi

This one is my favorite because of the glitter....

Well, thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week!

Hi Julie,
These are beautifully done. I love the colours - such a difference from the normal stark red usually seen on poinsettias. Gorgeous.
