Hello, Diane with you today.
This week our challenge is Holly Days.
With this theme we are to use Holly and/or a Poinsettia
on our project.

Obviously I went with a Poinsettia.
I started with an embossed background using a Poinsettia EB folder
on 3/4 of the card.
The top panel of the card I used Spellbindesr A2 Curved Borders Three
on ivory card stock.

I cut a few Impression Obsession  Pine Branches 
and added snow using a Snow Marker.
If you are not sure what that is, it is a marker that is liquid,
you put it on where you want, then heat set it
and it magically becomes puffs of snow!

Next, I made a beautiful Poinsettia using
Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.
I added a chunky glitter to the leaves
and a few "borrowed" Prills from my friend staying with me for the center!

I have to say this is one of the easiest Poinsettias to make and so beautiful, too!!

Thank you for visiting with me today!!

Your pine branches look so awesome with the snow! I'm pretty sure I have that SB poinsettia die set, but mine seems so huge. Love the way it looks on your card with the chunky glitter. Also love the embossing folder and curved die cut. A real WOW card, Diane!

How gorgeous!!! I LOVE the glitter on your green leaves and the bit of "snow" on your pine bows. It really gives such great depth and texture. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
