Christmas Flowers!

Hello! I hope you're enjoying the start of a long weekend (if you're in the UK). I'm back again today with another card. There's a few floral challenges about, one of which is a Christmas one so I thought I'd break out this Poinsettia die I haven't used in a while. I inked up the veins of the petals using the die itself and the matching ink to the cardstock. There's also some gold mist on the cream panel, hopefully it shows in the photo. I've used this weeks Merry Monday theme of Flowers along with this weeks Wanna Sketch? and Just Add Inks Colour theme challenge. I'm also going to enter in the current CASology challenge and Paper Players challenges, both of which are Flower/s. Phew, that's a lot of challenges! I hope you like it though, thanks for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Supplies;
Die - Spellbinders 'Poinsettia'
Paper - Simple Stories 'Handmade Holiday'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Baked Brown Suagr', 'Cherry Cobbler', 'Garden Green' & 'Naturals White'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Cherry Cobbler', 'Garden Green' & Delicata 'Golden Glitz' 
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink 'Framed Out #8'
Other - Heidi Swapp Colour Shine mist 'Gold Lame' & gold glitter dot

Lots of lovely elements on your card, Beth. The background paper, and gold splatters, are gorgeous. You've used our challenge colours beautifully. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
