Poinsettias in May!

Hi there and Happy Thursday!! I've been a day ahead of myself this week, woke up this morning thinking it was Friday, hoping tomorrow was sleep in day....I guess I'll have to wait one more day!!

We have beautiful weather still, the sun is shining and its warm, although still pretty windy out there. I might just head to the garden center today and see what I can find to put in the large urn pot at my front door.

Well, today's card share is another that Melody and I made during our stamping day. Melody brought this card to CASE, she found the original on SplitcoastStampers.  Isn't it pretty? It was a thank you card but we decided to change up the background by embossing it with the petals folder (which really mimicked the poinsettia flowers nicely!) and we added a Christmas sentiment. I don't even remember what stamp set the flowers are, you'll have to remind me Mel!

We embossed the flowers onto red cardstock, cut out and layered 2 for each flower.  We secured them with a large silver brad.  It was a pretty simple card to do, yet very striking, I really loved the Black, White and Red combination.

Thank you for dropping by, I hope you have a great day today!!
