Christmas Poinsettia

On my last trip to my favorite LSS, I found this great December Poinsettia stamp set from SNSS. I made this card for a VSN challenge on the SNSS connection recently and thought I'd post it here too. I love the pop of the red flowers against the all white background.
I made this card for another VSN challenge to use a different fold. I made a gate fold card and used PTI berry sorbet card stock and ribbon along with a sizzix embossing folder. The inside image was stamped off once for a subtle look, and the sentiment is from a SU! set. If you click on the picture, you can probably see the detail of the stamping inside a little better.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Carol, these are both beautiful cards but I have to tell you that your first card is my favorite. I just LOVE the bright red against the all white card. This is true ELEGANCE at it's best. I have the hardest time trying to color a poinsettia, but you have it mastered. The swiss dots really pop on this card. Hope you are felling better today. Talk soon

BOTH are gorgeous! Love how you framed the image in the first card and all that white. The second card is just as lovely and really like that fold.
