Hey y’all!  So I got my days a little mixed up and calendars were a little wonky and I ended up with an extra project, which I’ve decided to post today instead of waiting for a couple of weeks.

You know, I’m not really a pink kinda girl, and somehow I ended up with pink as the main theme.  It really was quite by accident, since the original plan was white, ALL white!


The poinsettia was die cut/embossed and while I was in the process of shaping the leaves, it turned red/pink.  I truly doubt that this had anything to do with the mist that I had sprayed on the blooms, but instead some left over ink on the foam I was using for shaping; when I turned the leaves over, they were pink.  Instead of tossing them (which was my first inclination), I decided to go with the mistake and make a happy ending with it.  Actually, I liked the little touch of color!

The sentiment, Quietfire Design – Christmas Waves a Magic Wand, was embossed with Queen’s Gold Embossing Powder and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels 40 Decorative Accents.  While the paper was still in the die template, Antique Linen Distress Ink was sponged around the inside of the die.


The layers behind the sentiment were die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels 40, and sponged with Antique Linen as well.  I couldn’t decide on the color of ribbon to use, so I went with dying some seam binding with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.


I guess that’s all for now.  I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
