{Pretty Poinsettia}

Do you ever have one of those days when no matter what you do to your card, it just doesn't look exactly right? Well, this is one of those days for me! After all the changes and add ons I made to this card I knew I just had to post it! For my card I used my Cricut, and SCAL software to die-cut the layered poinsettia. I sprayed the flowers with water, crumpled them up and set them out to dry over night. I sponged them with Bravo Burgundy ink, and added shimmer paint to the edges. The music note ribbon is from Michael's and the vintage lace from an estate sale I went to. The music note paper is from another page of actual piano sheet music, and the sentiment is from the SU set "Curly Cute".  I hope that you like my card today, it went thru a lot to get here. LOL  Here are some of the challenges I am playing along with today!

As always thank you for visiting my blog today!
