Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,
It's been a while...I'm making some cards for Christmas and decided I'd enter the challenge. 

I'm afraid I've left it until the last minute (again) and I'm pleased to find the challenge, because I've used the colours as my inspiration.

I'm pleased with how this card has turned out.

I've used an embossing folder for the background ( cream cardstock)  and sprayed with green mist.
I had to use a rub on for the message because the cardstock was difficult to stamp.

The ponsettia is from PTI. I stamped in black and then used distress ink to colour. I've cut it out by hand and addes some sequins to the centre for a bit of bling. 

I've placed it onto some green cardstock and then I rounded the bottom left corner. 
I decided it was ok to stop there!

The inspiration has been useful, so I think I'll have to enter more challenges in 2015.

Thanks for looking. I'll be around to visit posts later tonight.
