Christmas card club - Poinsettias

The theme for this fortnight at the Christmas card club has been chosen by Dutchess (Margaret) - Poinsettias - any colour you like.

I have used blue poinsettias from Daydream Designs.

Embossed white card with funky poinsettias.  Printed sentiment from Daydream Designs onto label from Valeriane (i have changed the colour) cut out and layered onto white card.  Printed 3 poinsettias, cut them out and layered on top.

Unfortunately Diane had to close her Daydream Designs shop so the images are no longer available.

The Christmas card club blogs are listed on the left side of my blogs if you would like to have a look at the different cards made to this theme.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas challenge 218 -cut it up

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Holly Jolly Christmas - non traditional colours

The sentiment on your lovely card is wonderful Margaret. Excellent for Easter too, so I think I might be using that. Great card for the challenge. Christine
