Christmas Poinsettia

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #42 – sketch.

CAS Colour & Sketch Challenge #42

And here is my take:

by Karen @ carefree creations - Christmas Poinsettia

I don’t know why, but I was in a Christmas mood when I stamped for this challenge.

I love this pattern paper and haven’t really had a chance to use it. The paper can be a bit overwhelming, but I think it works really well in this instance.

I hand cut the large poinsettia before I realized I had a die-cut for it! Knowing that now though, I may make more of this card to use as a gift set – it really isn’t hard (even with the cutting).

Make sure you check out the other design team members:

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  1. Very classy. The poinsettia is really set off well by the gorgeous paper and I love a kraft and red combo. Brilliant job!
