Christmas Flowers

I do like poinsettias.   I have since I had a customer that was a grower and I used to tour their greenhouses in the Fall for all of the new blooms they had coming out for the holidays.   It was BEAUTIFUL to see rows and rows and rows of lovely red flowers.  Of course, one of the special spots was the greenhouse with all the research and development strains of poinsettias they were working on.   It was like a rainbow of mixed colors and sizes and they were unique and some were even pretty.   Since they were in research phase, some didn't come out exactly as they had hoped or planned.  This card is a little like one of the research flowers.  It needed just a little more sparkle for my liking.   I sprayed it with stardust finishing spray so IRL it has a glimmer but that doesn't show in the picture.  I also realized it's missing a sentiment so I'll have to go back and add one later or maybe just leave it for a nice Holiday Thank you card?  You'll see more of this raindeer though....Card Sketch from Paper Players #65Supplies:  All A Muse Studio - Paper:  Wasabi, Cherry, French Roast Shimmer, Twas The Night;  Stamps:  Nordic Noel;  Ink:  French Roast, Wasabi, Cherry;  Cherry Organdy Dot Ribbon,  French Roast Buttons, Twinkles, Stickles


  1. What a beautiful Christmas card! I love how you stamped on the words--and you don't really need a sentiment because of that! Just so pretty! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!

  2. I love it without a sentiment then it can be used for any occasion, thinking of you, thank you , christmas, etc

  3. Love that you flipped the sketch...and your colors are fabulous! I think it's just fine without a sentiment...put it on the inside ;) Thanks so much for joining in 3 times this past week at the Paper Players!
