Card A Day challenge


Gosh is it really the last day in November.  Where has this month gone?  I have been meaning to post a Card to the Card a Day challenge so I'd better do it before the month is over!  I think this will fall under the category celebrate Christmas since Poinsettias and Christmas goes hand in hand. 

I was inspired by an awesome card by Dawn McVey.  You can see her wonderful card here.  I made a smaller A2 card so I used 1 1/4" squares and rounded the opposite corners with the Zutter Round It All.  This is an amazing tool.  I was able to round about 7 squares at one time! The greeting a stamp by Studio G.  The scallop comes from my Card Base 6 file.  The poinsettia is from my newest digital stamp Poinsettia Bouquet.  I colored it with copics and placed gold seed beads in the middle adhered with diamond glaze. I love those gold beads!  I purchased them on a whim ages ago and am sure glad I did.  Below is a close up...sorry about the blurry photo as it was a scan but hopefully you can get the idea.

If you would like to purchase any of the files I used please click on the previews below.
Thanks for stopping by! Please come back again!
