MC Aug/12 - Poinsettias

I got this Marianne Design 3pce Poinsettia die the other day and really wanted to play with it, it looked so pretty. So I just die cut a whole sheet of florets from this red decorative cardstock I had in my stash. Loved them when they lay over my desk BIG GRIN. I added an extra layer of petals to each flower.

Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on either card image and enjoy.

On one of the cards I'm using a Quietfire Design rubber Xmas stamp and on the other card I used my own calligraphy.

And it fits for these challenges:
Dreamweaver Stencils  Monthly Xmas in Aug
Top Tip Tuesday  #82 focus on the ribbon
Crafty Ann's Challenge  #71 use more than 1 circle
Crafty Catz Weekly  #144 use pink (the button is pink and the red on the translucent embossing turned it pinky)
2 Sisters Challenge  #103 Anything Goes
Fashionable Stamping  #27 Anything Goes
