Background Poinsettias

Hello and happy Saturday! 
I'm working this weekend but have some cards to share that I've been working on over the week.  I've actually started to buckle down and get going on some Christmas cards which I'm very proud of.  Usually I go into panic mode around the end of October and never make as many as I want but this year will be different!
This card is for the Flower Challenge - Focus on background stamping.  The flowers and leaves are from Essentials by Ellen stamped with Altenew inks. The sentiment - both stamp and die - are from Winnie & Walter.  I added some Liquid Pearls to the centre of the flowers and scattered some gems around the sentiment.  I actually made 4 of these in the end.  Once I'd decided on the flower placements they moved along pretty quickly and they're also pretty flat for mailing.  Yaaassssss to that!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers & leaves from Mistletoe & Holly) Essentials by Ellen, (Merry from The Big, the Bold & the Merry) Winnie & Walter
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Ruby Red, Parrot) Altenew
Dies:  (Christmas) Winnie & Walter
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Other:  (Buttercup Liquid Pearls) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

This is so pretty Jen! I like that you left the flowers and leaves uncolored. Pretty shades of red and green!

Nice! May I recommend Ardyth's current Muse Christmas challenge as another excellent motivation? Got me started, at least. ;)

Fresh, festive and fabulous, Jen ... the line art stamping looks brilliant with all the crisp white ... love the touch of shine in the Liquid Pearl centres! Hugs, Anita :)
