Poinsettias

Happy Hump Day!!!  Sorry....I just love that GEICO commercial!
And I do love Wednesdays, especially when it is time for the





 I made this beautiful card with the Tim Holtz Season Silhouettes Stamp set. First I stamped the background paper with Old Paper Distressed Ink. I distressed the edges and then sewed it to another piece of designer paper. The holly leaves are also from this stamp set. They were stamped in Peeled Paint distress ink . I fussy cut the holly leaves and adhered them behind the poinsettias. 
The poinsettias were cut with my Silhouette Portrait machine. I just LOVE that thing!!!!
I added some lace to the middle and green tulle behind the poinsettias on the lower right corner.
