Christmas Card Club - "Poinsettia"

Good afternoon all. 
Hope you're all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend, whatever you're up to.

Our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club is now due. It's Karen's turn to choose this time and she set the theme "Poinsettias". 


I bought a tonic die in the sales earlier this year and this poinsettia has been sitting on my desk for several weeks now waiting to be used. I've teamed it up with one of the new Die'sire templates then managed to layer it up very wonkily!! I've added stickles but it doesn't show very well.

I have added a blank insert but I may take the whole card apart and redo it!!



You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.

Challenges entered:
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
Christmas Card Challenges - no embellishments

  30. Like the others it does not look wonky to me Carol. I can usually tell if one of my layers is not completely straight because it sticks out like a sore thumb to me lol! My guess is that you are the same - leave it be - everything on this card is beautiful Karen x
