A Poinsettia for Christmas

Hello and welcome to my little slice of bliss! Today I am posting for the DeNami Design Team's last Pinspired feature for the year. This month we were inspired by this beautiful seasonal photo:

Sigh, that just makes me happy to look at!! I was completely captivated by those bright and beautiful colors for Christmas and that lovely layered red and pink poinsettia. So here's what I came up with:

What do you think?

I think this may be one of my favoritest holiday cards yet!! I used some gorgeously textured fuchsia cardstock (formerly available thru DeNami, but sadly no more--sniff, sniff!) as the base for this card, and I just LOVE how it sets off the other colors in the design. (I hope it looks fuchsia to you and not red on your device. Fingers crossed!)

I used a bunch of DeNami products to put this together:

Your doily is the perfect back drop for your beautiful poinsettia. I think I am going to have to add that frame to my shopping card as well. Have a GREAT Wednesday!

Sweet card and I like the font the Merry Christmas is done in. That and the doily are perfect with that color cardstock!

Such a beautiful poinsettia! I am picturing it with a fuchsia backdrop now that I've read your *did* come across red to me. :( Those colors are so difficult to photograph, aren't they?

Gorgeous card! I love fushia pink for Christmas. It's so girly and fun.
Isn't it awful when something is no longer available after we fall in love with it and have so many plans for places where we could use it again. Nothing else ever seems to work quite as well.
