This card is based on the sketch at Christmas Card Showdown
Initially I was planning to just add the poinsettia, but when I fiddled around with the die cuts I liked the line made by the added holly leaves, it seems to draw your eye to the whole of the card rather than just allowing it to settle in the corner.
I love that poinsettia and foliage washi tape, but I can't remember where it came from. The poinsettia die was from an old magazine - probably Die Cutting Essentials - and the holly dies are some blog candy I won. The stamp is a very old mag freebie that wasn't stamping too well and has been revitalised since I got my Misti.
As well as Christmas Card Showdown, I am sharing this with
The Holly and The Ivy - anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - September
Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge - anything goes
Christmas Card Challenge - use leaves (incidentally, did you know that those red parts on a poinsettia aren't petals, they are bracts, so technically they are really leaves!)
