{Pretty Pretty Poinsettia}

nov9-2

 Good Evening friends. Today I created a card using one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets, Papertrey Ink's "Christmas Poinsettia" and the matching die set. I cut out the poinsettia's and stamped them with the coordinating stamp set using A Muse Studio Cranberry pigment ink. The background was stamped in A|S Pebble ink using the SU background stamp "French Script". I added a couple of rows of machine stitching around the stamped background.  The sentiment is the PTI set "Photo Finishers" and matching die set. I stamped two flourishes from the same set. I think it adds the perfect finishing touch to the sentiment! Finally I added a few yellow beads from Making Memories adhered using Crystal effects. I hope you like my card and I thank you for visiting my blog today!

Today I am playing along with the following challenges:
