Double D Challenge - Poinsettias

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:


The design team ladies have come up with some amazing designs for your inspiration, be sure to pop over and check 'em out!  Speaking of inspiration ... here's the mood board I created ... hope it helps to inspire you!

Here's today's creation . . .

Those who know me know I love the color purple so of course my eye was drawn to the purple poinsettia in the upper right corner.

For my poinsettias I have used the Poppystamps 'Stitched Poinsettia Trio' (#1608) die set.  My greenery was created by snipping apart a Sue Wilson 'Holly Swirl' (CED3106) die cut panel.

My sentiment panel came from the Hunkydory 'Holly Jolly Christmas' die set.

I loved making these poinsettia and used Heartfelt Creations PRILL for the centers.

We have this fabulous Elizabeth Craft - Poinsettia die offered as the prize to one lucky random winner.  Remember ... you gotta play to win!
