 I saw this card by Julie Gearinger that was so beautiful I had to case it.  Used stampset Joyful Christmas to stamp the poinsettia on Cherry Cobbler cardstock in basic black and then colored the edges some with white watercolor pencils. The leaves are stamped onto garden green in black.. As you all know I am not much of fussy cutting but once I had it stamped on the paper, I cut the whole thing out in just 10 minutes watching the Big Bang Theory.  The base card is Cherry Cobbler with garden green on top then a piece of whisper white stamped with script (retired) in garden green.  A sheet of vellum paper was laid over the script background.

The sentiment was stamped in cherry cobbler on white then layered with garden green then cherry cobbler.
The poinsettia was layered using dimensionals and basic pearls in the center to add interest.

I had so much fun making this card.... I would have used it for my christmas card if it were not so bulky to mail......
