**************************************

My first card uses Tis the Season.  I stamped the poinsettias in Rockin Red and Icing on the Cake using the rock 'n roll technique.  The leaves were all embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder.  My sentiment was stamped onto a strip of white cardstock and layered with vellum and added to my panel with foam ahesive.  For some bling, I added some gold sequins in various sizes.

**************************

My second card uses the Wreath of Joy die set.  I die cut the wreath and "dipped" it in watered down Lime Rickey and Grass Skirt Catherine Pooler inks.  I love love this look!

Wreath

The Joy word die was die cut with red cardstock and along with the background, was spritzed with Gold Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  My wreath was layered onto tri-level square panels.  This leaves the card fairly flat for mailing!

I was on the fence about the poinsettia stamp until I saw your first card for today. I've now been converted into a fan, and my first order of business will be to stamp some poinsettias with gold embossed leaves when my collection arrives. It is such an elegant look!
