Poinsettia Card - And Blog Candy #5 reminder

Hi there!  Our first taste of snow today - December 1st!  Can't believe where the time has gone.

Just a quick reminder to leave a comment (any comment) on any of the posts this week - or by e-mailing me directly - and you will be entered into the draw for the Inky Antics Birthday Turtle clear stamp set.  HERE is the link to the post with the info on that if you need it - It's Blog Candy #5.

Now for today's card:
Here is one of my favourtie flower stamp images from Sunshine Designs - and of course it is a Holiday flower.  Remember - you can click on any of the images if you want a bigger photo.

Materials: CS (Bazzill); Paper - Accademia (Fabriano); Ink - Versamark (Tsukineko); Stamps - Poinsettia SD029M, sentiment - Christmas Word cube (Sunshine Designs, Stamp Barn); Tombow markers, paint brush, adhesive, detail gold embossing powder, Sheer ribbon - cream (Offray), oval punch (SU!), gold jump ring, 1/8" hole punch, silicone.

And here's a closer look at the flower itself.

The 4 petals in the fore front were gently curled around a pencil and then adhered to the base image with clear silicone.  Silicone is a great way to get extra height from your adhesive - and it dries solid so there is no movement of the piece or flattening (as there sometimes is with foam tape).

Until next time have a great day!
