Christmas Poinsetta

the only way I get to have one in my house is on a card as soon as I buy them they curl up and die.....too draughty in my house

red and white certainly seems to be my favourite this year.....
I have stamped and embossed the Justrite christmas holly background stamp, used the justrite christmas miracle ornaments to emboss the bauble and cut out with my spellbinders die.....spellbinders poinsetta with white embossing.....cheerylynndesigns holly flourish and a few bits of bling....hope you like it....
