Perfect Poinsettia from Premium Art Brands

Hello there, a quick post to share one of the cards I made for the recent Premium Art Brands show on Create and Craft. As well as my favourite PanPastels and Graph'It Markers they have brought us some gorgeous new clear stamps designed by the lovely Nikky Hall! Check out my new watermark too, its from Polkadoodles, isn't it cute??

For this card I've used my favourite bp from Angelberry Christmas cd. I've added a pretty doily and a sentiment from the same cd, die cut with nesties and framed with another die cut. I''ve used the Perfect Poinsettia stamps, coloured with Graph'It markers and decoupaged with dew drops in the centres. I've added some die cut gold glittery swirls for a bit of bling, a pearly flourish. To finish off I've added a seam binding bow topped with a button and some bakers twine.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Mania: ribbon
Crafty Sentiments: make it girly
Holly Jolly Christmas: Monochromatic
Little Red Wagon: polka dots
Paper Playtime: Use pearls
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

Well thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
