CCAYR Christmas Belles DT Inspiration

Just popping in tonight with a quick share for the Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge blog:
This month's theme was "flowers," so what better than poinsettias?  I was originally going to use one of my die cuts for this card, but when searching through my papers for something to go with it, I found this great paper with these stunning glittered poinsettias.  I just had to cut some out!  The paper I used on the bottom was from the same Recollections "Believe" pad.  The leaves on this paper were black, so I cut 2 of those out as well, and then used this DYMO label maker sentiment that has been laying on my desk for some time.  Added a piece of ric rac to emphasize the border, and this one was done.
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #28:  ATG or optional "vintage" theme
Sweet Stampin' Christmas:  ATG Christmas
Christmas Card Challenges #10:  ATG or optional photo challenge
CHNC #329:  ATG or optional "house or building" theme
That's all from me for today.  Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to enter the challenge over at CCAYR!  God Bless!
