This month’s Essentials by Ellen Pin Sights Challenge is all about reds.

I used the poinsettia image from the Mistletoe and Holly set to create a background in VersaFine Crimson Red and Satin Red (both embossed with clear embossing powder). I used the “day” part of “oh happy day” (Bold Blooms) and the “wishing you a wonderful” part of “wishing you a wonderful holiday season” (Mistletoe and Holly).

I am content with the final product – I think it would make a lovely card for a December birthday or wedding shower. Or even a nice Valentine, if the recipient is not fluent in floral classification.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I like it. I think the flower is stylized enough to have multiple uses. Really pretty.
