Christmas at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good morning Friends! Today starts are new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!  This week the very talented Leanne is   our hostess and she is asking us to make a Christmas Card.  When I was at the CK Convention a few weeks ago I picked up this beautiful Poinsettia stamp and here is what I did with it:
I began by stamping my poinsettia 4 times.  I cut each layer by hand and then colored them up using Spectrum Noir pens.  After coloring I added some glitter to make it sparkle.  A gem in the center finished it off.  The paper is from The Paper Studio and the lace and tag are from my stash.  The outside sentiment is from an old set I have had forever.


The inside of my card was completed using scraps from the front.  You can't see it in the photo but I stamped the poinsettia in a light sage ink behind the verse.

Here is a close up of this beautiful image:

So what are you waiting for?  Hop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks to see the beautiful creations the rest of the design team has to show.  While you are there leave them some love.  They do amazing work!

I am entering her into the following challenges:
