Poinsettia Joy

Eek I'm doing Christmas in July again!  When it comes to Christmas cards I really like to keep things simple. It's the time of year when I'm making more cards and spending a lot on postage, so a million embellishments just isn't cost effective to me. 
For this card I have used the gorgeous Conie Fong image 'Holly Poinsettia' and a lovely focal paper from My Mind's Eye. 

Product list:

  • Kraft card blank
  • MME 'Sleigh Bells Ring' designer paper
  • 3D foam pads
  • ProMarkers - Umber, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Pastel Pink, Black, Warm Grey 4 & 5, Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick, Holly, Pine, Lush Green, Sunflower, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Apricot, Walnut, Henna, French Navy, Aegean, Sky Blue, Amber, Tulip, Indigo, True Blue, Cobalt, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Gold & Ginger
  • Sakura Gelly Roll, White
  • Wink of Stella, Clear


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Conie Fong (FB) - Anything Goes/Christmas In July
  2. Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - #343 AG
  3. Crafty Awesomeness - July AG
  4. A Gem of A Challenge - #199 Christmas In July
