A Sweet Tooth and a Christmas Poinsettia

I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge to create something with the theme "sweet tooth." I used this pre-colored digi image (I'm unsure of the availability) and paired her with some dsp from Echo Park. That stack of cupcakes looks mighty sweet to me! LOL I added some hot pink ribbon from my stash, along with a SNSS birthday sentiment and a few yellow and blue pearls to finish this birthday card.

I made this card for this week's QFTD112 challenge which honors Wanda/cullenwr. I designed my card around this card I found in her gallery. I used the SB layered poinsettia die and real red card stock, sponging with chocolate chip ink and adding a pearl button. The leaves were done with PTI new leaf green. The tag was made using the Cricut, stamping the Contempo Christmas sentiment with versamark and embossing with gold ep. I embossed the background using a Sizzix Snow Globe ef, and added a touch of gold cording to finish this one. Another Christmas card added to my stash - I love that I'm getting ahead so early this year with Christmas cards!

Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend! I have lots of errands to run today and the sun is out, so I'm anxious to get outdoors for a while! Thanks for stopping by!

Carol, your first card is sweet, pun intended. I love the three different brads on your sentiment piece. Your poinsettia card is phenomenal. I love the brown on the red. It looks like a velvet flower, so rich. Just gorgeous.
Talk to you soon.
