Happy Little Stampers - October Christmas Challenge

The October Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers is a good one this month! I love poinsettias and always have several around my house during the holidays.


I made a second card for the October challenge...Love how this one turned out!


The poinsettia stamp is an old one from Flourishes. I stamped it in the upper left corner and then did a partial stamp in the top right corner.  I stamped with Memento black ink and colored the image with Copics.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I popped the white poinsettia panel with some fun foam.  I added some gold borders on the card base with a gold leafing pen.  It's really very bright gold IRL.  I added some glossy accents to the berries and a little clear Wink of Stella to the petals of the poinsettia.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Hi Susan, just spotted this beautiful poinsettia at the HLS October Christmas challenge, and realized it had been a while since I enjoyed a visit to your blog. This is a splendidly festive card, very dramatic and love the bold design of the floral image. Wonderful work on the coloring too. Always love when the sentiment can reflect the true meaning of this holiday. TFS and joining in with the HLS October Christmas Challenge.
