Poinsettias For All Of You

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!! I spent some time this weekend getting together Christmas DP's, embellishments, and dies that are in my stash. I have used some of the things I found on my card!! I have made it for the Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar Special Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes with the Option of  Pearls and Lace.

For this card, I used SEI Christmas Mint Marzipan and Nonparelis DP's. Tilda with Hood from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Our Craft Lounge Sugar Sparkly Fluff and Doodlebug White Flock to the fringe of Tilda's coat. I kept adding Sakura Quickie Glue and fluff and flock until I got the thickness that I wanted. The white roses, white rosebuds, and white lace with pearls are from my stash. The large poinsettia is from the floral department at Michaels. I removed it from the stem and added a pearl brad from K and Company to the center. The holly was cut using  Sizzix Border Die #656293 Phrase, Noel with Holly and Frame. The red rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  They were a gift from my very talented and sweet friend Jacque. Thank you Sweetie!! I love them!! The red berries are large red pearl beads that I threaded on a green wire, so they could be added to the arrangement.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! I really do appreciate it!! I have some very exciting news to share with you in a couple of weeks!! I can't wait to tell you!!
Have a wonderful day!!
