The Poinsettia

 Christmas Craft Creations starts a new challenge today! Our theme for this month is Christmas Flowers.  and our own Shona has graciously donated a special prize of a Recollections Poinsettia Stamp and Die Set.

For our "flower" challenge, I thought this adorable image "The Poinsettia" by Hetty Clare would be perfect.

I used Copic markers to color the image and to keep it simple I added one layer of dark green cardstock to back.  I used a glitter pen to add some sparkle on the flowers and berries.  Looking at it now I'm wondering if I should add a small embellie (or 3) near the top, maybe sequins, tiny diamond gems, pennant - any thoughts?

Well I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you join us for our Christmas Flower challenge and if you do, remember to add our Challenge Badge (below) to your post for your chance to win!
