chocolate card/boxes, and as a result I was invited to be the Guest Designer
for the month of January. I was thrilled to accept!! The theme this month is
Below is my first card for the challenge.

I used the 'out-of-the-box' technique to die-cut around the image, as it
is a fairly large stamp.

Coloured with Promarkers, is the incredibly cute image

A closer look at my poinsettia, die-cut foliage, and bead sprays.
The centre of the poinsettia is Prills mixed with clear craft glue.
