Red and Gray Poinsettia

Just a quick post. Lora has this week's member challenge on the CardSwaps forum on the CardMaker magazine web site. She challenged us to create a project using only the colors of red, gray and white. To be honest, color challenges are not my favorite types of challenges and rarely do them, but after seeing all the beautiful cards everyone was creating with these colors, I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. Red and gray is a classic color combo, but it's not one I see often in the challenges. I also had been wanting to try my hand at making a handmade poinsettia out of fabric. For this one I used some white lace-like fabric from one of my Goodwill clothing finds. There's really not much else to the card - some DP, red and gray cardstock and bling. I handstitched around the outside. The border punch is EK success. The flourish die is Quikutz and the the holly embossing is from a Sizzix Impressions plate.

Thanks for stopping by!

I was hoping to do this challenge but didn't get too. I love the color ideas and the pointsettia and bling!
