Give Your Heart

Today's card features one of Power Poppy's digital stamp sets - Poinsettia and Pomegranates. I wanted to create a Christmas card in non-traditional colors other than the blues/pinks/teals that are becoming so popular these days. (I like them, just wanted to do something different.)
Instead of coloring my poinsettia arrangement, I chose to print it off in brown and use it as a background for my Christmas card. I also alerted a sentiment from the same set, giving it a brown chalkboard look to match my main image.
Supplies and Tools:
Poinsettia and Pomegranates (Power Poppy), Sequins, Vintage Lace, Baker's Twine, Washi Tape, Fired Brick Distress Oxide, Corner Punch (Close to my heart), Joy Sentiment (Martha Stewart)

Aren't you so smart! I am not the best at coloring and this really is more my style. Love love the kraft/white/red combo and the placement of the image is perfect. Another amazing design. Hugs, Autumn

Oh wow, Esther--one of my favorites! I love the brown & white image left uncolored! In fact, I was just looking at some other cards without coloring & now I really want to make one like this!
