Perfect Poinsettias

     OK, it's Day 4 of the MKH Designs October Release and, as promised yesterday, I'm sharing another Christmas card.  I used the image and one of the sentiments from today's new set, "Perfect Poinsettias" and I just love how this turned out!


     Today I colored with my ProMarkers, then die cut it and the Hunter Green frame with two of my framing dies from Spellbinders.  I threaded white satin ribbon through the larger frame and added one of the bows I sew by the dozens, each with a pearl.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut and matted, then hand cut again.

12 Months of Christmas
A Bit More Time to Craft
CCC Digi
Classic DT Open

Creatalicious
Outlawz Greetings
Pearly Sparkles
   
     This is such a gorgeous, classic Christmas set and, although I have other poinsettia stamps in my collection, I do believe this one is my favorite for hands-on coloring.  The sentiments available in the set means it can be used for most of the winter holidays.  Or 'summer' holidays if you live down under.  :-D   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
