It's A Poinsettia Time of Year

It's "Nature Week" over the Digi Doodle Shop Challenge Blog.  I think the Poinsettia is one of G.od's most beautiful flowers.  It stands strong with vibrant colors and just makes a room come to life.  That's why I chose this beautiful Poinsettia and Poinsettia Merry Christmas Banner to make my card with.  You can get yours here I colored the digi twice and separated the two layers with foam tape.  It was really easy  to do because I used The Paper Temptress' Cryogen White cardstock.  It does not run when using red like some other papers I have used.  I stickled the poinsettias on the banner and used a Gold Metallic Sakura Gel Pen to color the Merry Christmas and edge the banner.  The gems are really red and green, but the red photographed amber.  The paper is from Aww Shucks a local scrap book store.  They are flipsides of the same paper from Echo Park Paper Co.  The elements in this card sort of stand on their own, so I didn't do much at all.  Easy and quick which I certainly need this time of year.  How about you?

Treat yourself to a second cup of coffee and pop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have made.  Then grab a little bit of nature for yourself and enter a creation.  There is a $10.00 gift card going to the lucky person who's number is chosen.
