Pink Poinsettias


It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both! I chose both and came up with a different kind of Christmas card -- one that doesn't actually say "Merry Christmas" but instead says "hello friend!"



Supplies and Tools:
Dies: Mini Holiday Greens (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
Embossing: Christmas Quilt Embossing Folder (Couture Creations)
Ink: Aged Mahogany Distress Ink (Ranger), Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento), Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide (Ranger)
Misc. Mulberry Flowers, Pearls
Repeat Impressions Stamps:
10504-Q, Wavy Oval Frame Lg
10303-H, Kathy's Flower Outline
Plate 9900

Beautiful and love the fact that it is a "friend" card vs. Christmas card. You can use this all winter, or Valentines Day. Sch pretty colors.
