Peace On Earth

One of my favourite flowers are poinsettias, and when John and I were
married, the church was filled with huge bunches of them.

Once I made the poinsettia, this card was very quick to complete,
using paper with a lovely antique image and sentiment.

A closer look at the poinsettia, with its edges sponged with Aged Mahogany
and Walnut Stain distress inks.

Inside my card co-ordinates with the front.

Dies - Tim Holtz (Sissix) Tattered Poinsettia; Memory Box Holly Branch
Punch - EK Success Scalloped Corner
Paper - Kaisercraft Turtle Dove
Sparklet - Kaisercraft
Ink for sponging - Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
Gold peel-off border sticker from my junk stash
