For Mum...

Hi Crafters,

This was the Christmas card that I made for my mum this year, she loves poinsettias and has quite green fingers when keeping them successfully from one year to the next.

I thought I'd make an easel card to show off this lovely Craft Creations decoupage image.
I layered the tartan paper from Craft Sensations on to glitter card for a beautiful sparkling border and used metallic gold card for the rest of the mats and to cut my Britannia Die sentiment. Grossgrain ribbon from stash.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #447/8 Seasonal Flowers
Crafty Creations - #357 ATG
Fussy & Fancy - #202 Christmas

Bye for now,

A gorgeous Poinsettia card for your Mum Lorraine, she really must have green fingers as they are not the easiest of plants to maintain - I have problems keeping them going a few weeks over Christmas. Many thanks for joining us at Allsorts Christmas challenge.
