A Poinsettia Christmas

Sorry I've been quiet for the past few days.......I've had a flare-up of tendonitis in my thumb and I've been trying to rest my hand so I can hold a marker again!
I made this card using the Verve Poinsettia. I stamped the images with Versamark on red cardstock and embossed them with gold embossing powder. I cut them out and popped them up on my last scrap of a favorite dsp. Sorry, I have no idea who made the paper, but I've had it for quite a while. I matted this on red cardstock, and went around all the edges with a gold deco pen. I used a Nestabilities label for the sentiment, cutting a 2nd one from red cardstock and slitting it lengthwise to add a layer beneath the white. I embosssed the sentiment in gold and added a gold metallic ribbon and 3 gold pearls in the flower centers.
I wish you all a fantastic Wednesday!

Your card doesn't show your pain...it's a beauty. Take it easy for a bit and try a bit of Aspercream. It helps! Pat
