pretty poinsettia

Happy Friday!

Popping in to share this card that is totally inspired by one of my favourite designers Dawn McVey. I LOVED LOVED this post she did  last year introducing her Signature Christmas stamp set and how she uses her background stamps. I just LOVED the colours she used and all the different background stamps.




I LOVE background stamps!! LOVE LOVE them! I used PTI stamps and my Pretty Poinsettia digi stamp and my polka dot background stamp from my Jane's Bakery set....that's coming soon!!
I printed Pretty Poinsettia a few times...cut it out (it's really not that hard to cut them out), layered them and finished off with one of my buttons. I curled the leaves using my pencil.




I really like this colour combo and think that I'll be doing this for Christmas card and tags this year!



If someone would like to play around with my Pretty Poinsettia just leave me a comment and I'll randomly choose a winner....or two..;)
Have a great weekend!
