Poinsettia Tag

Hello!  Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog
It's the end of November time to get serious about finishing up some Christmas cards!
Here's what I have for you today!
I used the beautiful Memory Box Plush Poinsettia Corner die.  I cut once in White and then in Hot Pink layering the pink petals back in to the white base die.  Check out all of that texture on the pretty petals.  I decided to make a faux window by layering 2 Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Tags together, leaving just a border.  On the back of the cut I added a piece of Vellum and White card stock--which I also added texture to using a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

Cut a smaller Stitched Tag for my sentiment and stamped image. 
I love these colors in Turquoise, Pink and White.  Non Traditional Christmas colors for sure, but I like their bright cheery effect!

I only adhered the very top of the sentiment tag so you could curl the end of it, this lends just a bit more dimension to the card.
Sheer Ribbon and Adhesive Pearls, which I colored with
Copic Markers to coordinate with my card stock.

Power Poppy stamps; Simple Joys and Glistening Paperwhites.

This card will also be entered into the Challenges at;  Scrapy Land, Anything Goes and Power Poppy, Portion Control
Fa La La La La
