Peaceful Poinsettia for PPA 279


It's a color challenge at Pals Paper Arts this week!  Here is the banner that I used to create my card:

12-10 PPA279 

Look at all the beautiful cards created this week over at the PPA site by clicking HERE

For my card, I used the poinsettia print and the music sheet print, both from Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I backed the music print with a thin layer of Basic Black and glued it to a Cherry Cobbler base.  The poinsettia print is 2" wide with 1/4" strips of Gold Foil glued to the top and bottom.  (TIP: when gluing thin strips of paper together like this, use the silicone mat underneath.  It makes it so easy to glue without sticking to everything around it!)  

Embellishments:  I stamped and hand cut two poinsettia leaves from Mossy Meadow.  With a glue dot, I wrapped some gold thread around the top of the leaves.  "Peace" was cut with several layers, the top being gold foil and the "shadow" underneath is Basic Black.  It is part of the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies.


You can find all of the supplies I used listed at the end of this post.  I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the amazing work posted this week over at the PPA site.  Come see another challenge and join in on Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by!
