Winner will receive a stamp set and ink pad!!

Blog Hop will end Sunday evening at 7:00pm Central. 
We will then post a winner!!


For my Christmas card I wanted to share with you today, I was inspired to use the beautiful Poinsettia Tangle stamp set!!!

The large poinsettia in this stamp set is absolutely gorgeous!! 
I could see it colored in so many different ways, but for my card today, I decided to stick with the traditional red poinsettia!  Wanted and elegant holiday card!!

I really like the "Wishing a Beautiful Christmas" sentiment in the set as well!!  Perfect with the image!!

I decided to stamp the poinsettia two times, so I could trim it up to have a couple of the petals popped up, to make the flower look 3D!  
How beautiful!!

I added some yellowish/gold rhinestones to the center, which I think adds the perfect touch!  Before adding the poinsettia to the card, I used a clear sparkly spritz to add sparkle to it!! LOVE!!

Behind the poinsettia I added a strip of the new Winter Plaid Paper!  I just love this paper for holiday cards!!  And even better, the opposite side is snowflakes!!!!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Your next stop in the hop is Chris's blog! 

We hope you are inspired all along the way!

Happy Hopping!
