Perfect poinsettia – Christmas card

Hello again
Well it is just a few hours to go now…. yes, I’m talking about the Christmas Craft Fair which I’m organising and where I’ll be holding a stall selling my jewellery and cards.
I think(!) all the prepartions are done now – well, too late if not, I guess… haha!

I have a card to share which I’m very proud of – I think I’ll have this one out on display on my stall on a mini easel to catch the light and show off the sparkle ;)
I hope someone will enjoy sending it to a loved one this year!

Will enter it now though in a couple of card challenges…

Going Grey with Scrap Creations GGSC166 – Make it Sparkle
Penny Black At AllSorts Challenge: November, Anything Goes 

Take a look:
Christmas card challenge inspiration poinsettia sparkle Penny Black I stamped, watercoloured and fussy-cut the poinsettia cling stamp (‘Christmas Pride’ Slapstick) by Penny Black stamping, colouring and layering up the central petals again for extra wow dimension. Then the real wow: lots of Stickles edging the petals and gold gems in the very centre.

Just look at all the shimmeryness!

(The classic music-score print paper is from an Authentique pad, and the ‘Merry Christmas’ ribbon was the last of some long-hoarded, by CraftyRibbons.)

Will promise to share a photo or two of the Fair ;)
Bye for now though, Rx
