FWF Christmas Poinsettia

Here's my card for this week's Unity Friends with Flair challenge. The trio of poinsettias were done with Unity stamps, colored with Copics and embellished with glittered red pearls. I cut a SB poinsettia and tried to color the petals to match the stamped images, but it didn't turn out the way I envisioned it in my mind :) I added a larger glittered pearl to the center, and added a gold sticker sentiment and called this one done.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!

I love how your die cut poinsettia came out! The coloring job is perfect for it; even if it wasn't want you envisioned.

Not sure what effect you had in mind for the Diecut poinsettia, but it's gorgeous the way it turned out. Loved the stenciling on those leaves, and some wonderful shaping too. The stamped flowers were lovely, and I always like to see how the sticker sentiments brighten up a card. Aren't they a terrific tool to have? A gorgeous card, Miss Carol. TFS & Happy wk ahead. Hugs
