Christmas Blessings

I was at a Christmas dinner a few evenings ago and met a fellow stamper (oh bliss) ... talking stamps, I mentioned that perhaps Waltzingmouse has made the most gorgeous poinsettia stamp ever?

So why isn't there a picture of one on my blog?

This is to remedy that :0)

Poinsettia

To make the flower festive, I heat embossed it with Champagne embossing powder and then rubbed ink over the image. Fussy cut and layered. There are 4 layers to this one.

Poinsettia Deet

The gold berries are recycled from a past Christmas package :0)

This has been popped in to play at the PaperCrafts December Gallery Challenge , and in Waltzingmouse's Gallery Challenge for this week too.

Hope you're having a good one!

Hugs! :0)
