Christmas Challenges

I am not really ready to make Christmas cards but thought I'd play in Flourishes' Christmas Spirit Challenge again as well as Christmas Cards  All Year  Round as they have a great sketch this month.

The Flourishes challenge is to use a Poinsettia Flower on your creation and use Flourishes stamps. This is then linked to their SCS thread. I used Flourishes stamps from "Poinsettia and Boxwood" set.  I stamped the poinsettia in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Memento Marker Rhubarb Stalk.  Also stamped some bows and sentiment with Rhubarb Stalk and cut out with circle and blossom dies. I used Red CS as my base and matted with Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers. Arranged all the elements using the sketch shown below.
