Pointsettia Flower Card

****For My Blog Makeover Giveaway, click HERE****

Hello My Fellow Crafters.

I have been wanting to make a card with a pointsettia on it.  I know I have seen some on other blogs, but could not remember just where I saw one.  So I googled it and low and behold found a great tutorial HERE at My Craft Spot.  And what better timing, this weeks challenge at My Craft Spot is Challenge #34 - Handmade Flower Power!!  Is that a co inky dink or what!!!  Anyway, here is my try at making a pointsettia:

I used Flower Shoppe for the pointsettia.  Here is a close up of the flower.

I used cooredinations cardstock for the flower.  Inked it up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I spritzed both the leaves and the flowers with glimmer mist and shaped the flower with my Imaginisce Petal Roller. I added a vintage style button for the center.  The background paper and green cardstock is Close to My Hearts "Believe" paper pack.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and added some Crinkle Ribbon in Vanilla Bean from My Craft Spot.
I finished the card up with a Martha Stewart tag, which I inked with more distress ink and the sentiment is from Sweet Anna Bee Designs "Joy to the World" set.  If you have time check her out HERE.  She is a high school student that has come up with her own line of stamps to help pay for college.  Isn't that a great idea!!
I finished the tag off with some tinsel string from Prarie Bird Designs and some glitter gel pen.

So, of course I am entering this in this weeks challenge at My Craft Spot.

Happy Crafting,
