Chloe's Poinsettia

Good day to you all.  Well back work again today so no crafting until Friday.
My card today is my 2nd christmas card.  2nd of many, I had better warn you.  I had also better warn you that I love poinsettias and I have quite alot of stamps of poinsettias and they all get used every christmas.  I know, boring or what!
Today's poinsettia is from Stamps by Chloe. The card is a 6x6 plain white base followed by christmas red card and a backing paper that was actually from a making cards magazine last christmas I think.  The green backing paper was also from the same magazine.

The image is decoupaged up using one stamp.  I have stamped the image 3 times in black and then clear embossed it.  I have then coloured it in with sakura glitter pens.  I do think those pens come into their own at christmas especially for things like flowers.  The bow is also stamped and coloured in with sakura.   This is certainly a useful little stamp.
This card is a DT card produced as a sample for my friend Sheila's blog challenge.
Hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by.  You take care.
