Pointseittias and Holiday Florals

Cooking With Cricut  is celebrating the 25 Days of Crafting Showcase.  This week our challenge and part of the celebration is all about Poinsettias and Holiday Floral.  I just love poinsettias, especially the pink ones.  So I decided to create my project using pink poinsettias and a little holly.

The card base is Kraft  and the mat is white card stock.  I embossed the mat with a holly embossing folder.  I then inked the embossing with celery green.  The poinsettia is is cut from the Joys of the Season cartridge.  It is inked in gold and 5 little pearls adorn the center of the flower.


  The label is cut from the Lacey Labels cartridge and also inked in gold.  The sentiment is from the Winter Wishes stamp set from K Andrew Design.  These stamps are of the highest quality and $1.00 from the sale of each set goes to charity.  AND, they are made right here in the good old USA!!!!  
The beautiful ribbons are from Kimberly at  My Craft Spot..  There are so many beautiful colors to choose from.   

I do hope you will visit the The wonderful members of the DT and link your Holiday Floral project up at Cooking With Cricut.  Have a great week and a wonderful Christmas!!
