Heart 2 Heart - Poinsettia and Pine Cones


Welcome to a fabulous challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

This is such an awesome challenge - it gives you a few choices and they are wonderful! 

Take a look at the gorgeous picture below. You can use that as your inspiration and there is also a colour scheme underneath. You can use that if you wish or you can use BOTH the photo and the colour palette. 
You have three choices: 
1. the photo as your inspiration
2. the colour palette
3. a combination of the two 


I chose to use a combination of the two. I love the colour palette as it contains some of my favourite colours (Glacier and Lagoon in particular). The scene itself is so peaceful and calming and I wanted to use the branches and pine cones in my card as well. 


I pulled out a stamp set from last year that was perfect to create the branches - Perfectly Pine. The pine cones were stamped using the Wonder of the Season stamp set and then coloured and the sentiment is also from that set. The poinsettia is cut from the Flower Market cartridge and brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush after it was shaped. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart for this, our first December challenge. 
We can't wait to see how you interpret this awesome challenge!
