Daisy Doodle Challenge #46

Hello again!  I'm sharing a Christmas card with a beautiful Poinsettia digital image from Daisy Doodles.  I printed the image on Copics X-press It Blending paper, and coloured the image using copic markers (R22, R24, R29, Y21 & Y17).  I created a scored border on the kraft cardbase using my Scor-buddy and made 2 slits at the bottom to string the ribbon.  The Season's Greetings sentiment was stamped all around the edge of the card.  Then I cut out the Poinsettia image and adhered it to the cardbase with some pop dots and added some tiny blings to finish off the card.

Please join us for the Daisy Doodles challenge, it's Anything Goes with a Digi week, so it's a great challenge to play along.  Please visit the Daisy Doodles blog for more inspiration from the Design Team.

Also, don't forget to check out this week's Giveaway post here.

Thanks, and have a great day!

Kary this is so elegant - love the way the pointsettia takes centre stage, and the bling just sets everything off to perfection.

The well coloured pointsettia exudes a certain richness to the card. The blings gave the finishing touches of a sparkling Christmas.
