Pink Poinsettia...

Christmas is not a time  nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. -Calvin Coolidge
Last year a group of friends and I exchanged Card Kits before Christmas and we were all supposed to use the kits and make cards. Then we were going to post them on our blogs...well, a year later I am finally working on the last half of the kits! (At least I am not the only one! A few in the group quit stamping around the time the kits showed up.)

This kit included PTI's Peaceful Poinsettia and Imaginisce Snowy Jo paper. I wasn't sure what I thought of the Graphic Poinsettias at first, but now that the card is done I really like the look of it! I pulled out my unused MFT Flower Trio & Leaf Die and made felt leaves and colored the flowers with my Copics.

 I used a sentiment from Woodware USA's Traditional Christmas Greetings for the outside And the inside...

Stamps: Peaceful Poinsettia (PTI,) Traditional Christmas greetings (Woodware USA)
Paper: Santa's Secret Garden (Snowy Jo by Imaginisce,) Scarlet Jewel, White (PTI,) Felt (MFT)
