Christmas Poinsettia

I really am getting bad about remembering to write my post for you all. What can I say? I'm just getting quite addle lately!

This week's lovely sketch is by Melissa, and our sponsor is Debbie -- keeping it all in the family again this week (smile). Here is the sketch:

Oh, and here is the fantastic prize:

I really liked this sketch. It worked up really nicely. The music background DP is from a pad by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's brand), and the two strips are paper from the Christmas Collection by Raspberry Road Designs (an UK company). The green card used for the matting is from my stash.

After matting and adhering the strips, I cut two circles (using Spellbinder circle dies), one in a piece of gold scrap that was on my desk and one in green. The poinsettia is from a packet of dimensional die cuts by K&Company.  It is layered and adhered with a foam dot. You cannot tell from the photo, but three of the leaves are glittered.  The three green gems at the top right are by Recollections.

Stop over at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have created. Also, check us out on Facebook.
