Sunday Stamps Challenge

When I saw the sketch at the Sunday Stamps challenge blog; my mind filled with all kinds of possibilities for the sketch.  I was thinking butterflies, flowers, snow flakes etc. etc. etc.  I'm sure I will be using this sketch again especially for Christmas cards!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

The maroon card stock base is from my stash as is the cream cardstock which I embossed with Stampin Up's Petals a Plenty embossing folder.  The 3 poinsettias are from Verve's stamp set "Poinsettia Christmas". I stamped 2 poinsettias in Versa Mark onto the maroon cardstock & 1 poinsettia onto Kraft cardstock and then heat embossed them with Stampendous Detail Gold embossing powder and Adirondack Cranberry.  The gold pearl embellishments are from Queen & Co - Sunshine yellow.  The ribbon I used is from my stash.  I am very happy with this card and will be making more Christmas cards & birthday cards (cupcakes) using this sketch.  The card came together very quickly as I already had the 3 poinsettias embossed and cut.  I love the gold detail on the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
