Fancy Poinsettia for Christmas

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

Took a bit of a break the last few days to enjoy the nice weather we've been having!
Shawn & I got out for a bike ride one afternoon which was fun! 
Have you noticed that it's getting darker earlier? Sadly a sure sign that Daylight Savings Time is coming to a close. 
Later today we are expecting rain. Some to be heavy over the next few days. I heard anywhere from 3-4 inches thru Sunday. We really need it but that might be a bit much. The winds have already kicked up and it feels much cooler. As for me, I will be downstairs crafting away! Let it rain!

Anyways, today I wanted to share a Christmas card I made.

I'm not too sure on this card but I was shooting for something different!

I stamped my flowers with Metallic Silver Ink, left them dry them punched them out with the Festive Flower Builder Punch. I have a few sheets of Brushed Silver Metallic Paper left so I used it under my flower. The sentiment is from a Papertreyink set called, Believe. Kelsey told me it needed more sparkle so I added a few very small rhinestones around the flower. I guess it's always good to ask for someone else's opinion on things! LOL Once they were done I really did like it and decided to make a bunch.

Night of Navy Poinsettia Card:

Stamps: Reason for the Season, Believe by Papertreyink
Ink: Metallic Silver, Garden Green, Night of Mavy
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Garden Green, Brushed Silver Metallic, Whisper White
Accessories: Festive Flower Punch, Lg Oval Punch, Rhinestones, Tombow Liquid Glue

What do you think??


My thoughts for today......

It sure does!

That is all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
