Christmas Wishes

Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge at Fusion Card Challenge.

I took my inspiration from the photo, the red and white.

I told you all in an earlier post about my love for Poinsettias and how I like to use them on a few of my Christmas cards each year.

This card was a real booger, and I was determined to make it work, I couldn't/wouldn't stop.

The poinsettia was what I started with and what gave me the most! 

I used the dies from the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits.

I die cut the flower a few times and went to work putting it together, that was where I had my issues, the glue was just messy. UGH! and I could not get my adhesive sheets to work, but I was determined and eventually got it together.

The rest of the card is fairly simple and straightforward.
 I used the basket weave EF and I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

I added a few pieces of greenery around the flower and finished with a few red rhinestones.

Some cards come together easily and others try your patience, but in the end I like the results.

Thanks for stopping by today!
